The Range selection tool is really an organic form of keyframing.  Once you have used the Range Selection tool to highlight a portion of a clip or clips, you can apply a filter for example to the selected range, and leave the rest of the clip unaltered.

First select the Range selection tool by either clicking it in the tool palette, or pressing ggg. Once activated left click and drag over the area you wish to select of a clip in the timeline. While dragging you will see a two up display in the Canvas that shows the frame the range starts and ends at. The highlighted area can now have a filter applied to it.

This function can be useful when the duration of an effect is known, but not necessarily where on the clip it will be used.
