  • Disable Auto-keyframing on Audio Clips in Premiere Pro CS6

    I’d like to be able to adjust the volume of the track OR clip in its entirety without adding a keyframe to whichever I happen to be editing. I’m using the default volume effect.

    For example, I have a clip selected. I open its effect controls, adjust the volume level, and see a keyframe added. Then I’ll scrub forward in the timeline, select another instance of the clip (let’s say I cut the clip in half, used one part early in the timeline, one part later), adjust the volume, and see another keyframe added to this second instance AND to the first.

    I don’t want keyframes at all. I’d just like to adjust the volume of the clip as a whole.

    Thanks in advance.

    Disable the Toggle Animation (stopwatch) first then apply volume level.

    Curious. In AE, it’s exactly the opposite. The first keyframe you set effectively turns on auto-keyframing. Auto-keyframing isn’t on by default. So if I enter a value in a field for any attribute, I still need to manually choose to create a keyframe to effect changes over time. Sure seems like the workflow in the two programs would align more closely. Especially with such a fundamentally simple/core feature like this.

    Anyway, thanks.

    I know this is old, as are most threads I stumble upon for problems I’m facing, but I am wondering the same thing. I NEVER want to use audio keyframes in the effect control panel and why this is selected by default is baffling and aggravating. If I want to keyframe my audio, I’ll do it in the timeline-or at least start it there and fine tune levels in the effects panel.

    I’m going to continue searching for a way to disable this. As a recent Final Cut convert (for a job) I’m finding that Adobe Premiere is the king of requiring multiple clicks to do things you can do with one in FCP.

    Agreed. Auto-keyframing is nice to have as an option, but to have it as default behavior with no way of disabling is truly baffling.

    Also, while I’m at it, I’m REALLY missing being able to map “lock audio and video tracks” to keyboard.
