    Id like to know if it is possible to have a cycle (loop) on a keyframe?
    for example if I have 2 keyframes of opacity (100% and 50%) and I want it to do a cycle so during the entire animation it would do it. Im sure there is a way to do it in expression but Im not that savy, for now Im uding the good old copy and paste but Im sure there must be a better way
    thanks

    You’d need an expression.

    There are 2 that could be directly applicable to your situation:

    loopOut();

    and

    loopIn();

    The first will loop the values after the last keyframe, the second will loop the values before the first keyframe.

    There are several different kinds of loops:

    loopOut("cycle");
    loopOut("continue");
    loopOut("pingpong");
    loopOut("offset");

    Here’s a video that should help illustrate the differences:
