Scaling Values When Pasting Attributes in Final Cut Pro

In Final Cut Pro it is frequent that we will use the function of pasting attributes to copy the values of attributes from one clip to another.  When there are multiple attribute values on one clip, it means the clip has been keyframed. When you paste attributes from a keyframed clip onto a clip of a different length, you must choose whether or not to scale attribute times.

For example let's say you have applied two keyframes on a 3 second clip that caused the clip to scale up from 0 scale to 20 scale over the first 15 frames of the 3 second clip. After copying the clip you want to paste the Basic Motion attributes onto a 6 second clip. By checking the Scale Attribute Times box, the duration between the 0 scale and 100 scale will be 30 frames. However if you leave the box unchecked the duration between 0 scale and 100 scale will remain 15 frames. 

When pasting attributes from clips that have no keyframes, it makes no difference whether or not you check the box.
