What is a Keyframe?


keyframe in animation and filmmaking is a drawing that defines the starting and ending points of any smooth transition. The drawings are called "frames" because their position in time is measured in frameson a strip of film. A sequence of keyframes defines which movement the viewer will see, whereas the position of the keyframes on the film, video, or animation defines the timing of the movement. Because only two or three keyframes over the span of a second do not create the illusion of movement, the remaining frames are filled with inbetweens.

In Write-on Video for Mac, you can set key frames on a video clip, image, sketches, captions, and stickers, and even audios.
The keyframe animation effects include,
1. Setting an anchor point: change the anchor point of the object. When you rotate the object, the object will rotate around the anchor point.
2. Move, set new position: move the object from one location to another location.
3. Rotation: rotate an object
4. Opacity: change the opacity of the object.
