Setting Current time indicator / keyframe


I’ve been able to figure out how to apply keyframes to specific properties, however, I have not been able to figure out how to set keyframes with specific properties at different times in the composition.

I.e. I need to set a keyframe with a Y rotation of -5 on frame 0 then another one with a Y rotation of 5 on frame 60. I’ve figured out how to do the first part, but not the second.

I hope I’m being clear enough, and that this can be done. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi @rvr091,

thanks for the detailed explanation, this is possible.
first you have to create a variable for the composition and the frame rate so you can calculate the time by frames (frames/ framerate).
then create a property variable and select the layer Y property.
next you can add keyframes by changing the time property to a specific time and then using the
property action add key to add a key with a custom value(-5/5) at the the time property.

I created for you this automation,

set rotation keyframes.json (10.0 KB)

Please let me know If you need a more detailed explanation.

Hi Alon,

Thank you so much! This is exactly what I needed it and will help me in building the rest of the automations that I need.

Thanks again!
