Customizing the Keyframe Graph in Final Cut Pro

When you click on the Clip Overlays button at the bottom left corner of the Final Cut Pro timeline,

you are then able to view the keyframe parameters that you have set for both video and audio clips. The graph is broken down into four parts: the Motion Bar, Filter Bar, Keyframe Editor, and the Speed Indicator Area. A handy function to be aware of is that you can choose to either hide or display these parameters depending on which you are currently working in.

Control click the clip overlays button. Your choices in the pop-up menu are to either view the keyframe parameters for Video, Audio, Display (Select) all parameters or Display (Select) none.

In this particular example, I placed a Sepia Filter on my clip, represented by the green bar, and I made an opacity adjustment which is represented by the blue bar. If I only wanted to see the filter parameter I could choose to hide all of the others by unchecking them in the video sub menu.

If you wanted to make an adjustment to the filter in the Keyframe Editor, you would control-click or right click in the Keyframe Editor area and choose the name of the filter that was applied from the list. A thin green rubberband will appear, giving you the chance to use the pen tool to set keyframes and make adjustements.
