Beginner’s Guide to Animating Anything With Keyframes

Need an image to move? Your video to zoom in? Text to fly out? The key to making anything move in DaVinci Resolve… keyframes.

A keyframe is sort of marker on a particular frame of your video where you’ve specified some sort of setting.

When you set another keyframe with different settings later, Resolve will interpolate — figure out what to do — in between.

So you can set a keyframe where you want something to start animating, and another where you want things to end up.

In this video from MrAlexTech, you’ll learn about:

  • Displaying transform controls
  • Viewing the transform controls in the inspector
  • Setting a keyframe for a specific control
  • Navigating to next/previous keyframes
  • Animating another parameter
  • Ease-in and Ease-out animation
