Converting an Audio Layer to Keyframes Adobe After Effects 6.5

One of the coolest plug-ins for Adobe After fx has to be Trapcode's Sound Keys plug-in. Sound Keys creates keyframes that puts a little extra kick to those audio-driven animations. But if buying a new plug-in isn't in the budget right now there is another option.

Way back in After Effects 6.0, Adobe added their "Convert Audio to Keyframes" keyframe generator which roughly does the same job as Sound Keys. Sound Keys has a few more options and extracts keyframes from frequency ranges instead of just the overall amplitude but Adobe's generator has its place.

Converting an Audio Layer to Keyframes

1. Select the audio layer you want to convert to keyframes

2. Animation > Key Frame Assistant > Convert Audio To Keyframes
