Hey guys in this tutorial I’m going to show you how to key frame for a mood change. So as you can see I have a lot of switch here. You double click it and load it in it’s just me flipping the light switch on.
So what we’re going to do is we’re going to key frame this for mood change, so I want to park my play head right before I flip the switch up right there. Looks good go to timeline add key frame. That will add a little key frame right here. Let me bring this down so you can see. Now you can see this key frame. I want to go forward one frame, and you can see it better there it is.
So now I want to skip forward to couple of frames until I flip the switch completely on. Go to timeline add one more key frame. Now as you can see I have these two key frames here. Okay I can zoom in to my timeline here a little bit and you’ll go to see a little bit better what I’m talking about. Now as you can see now I have these two key frames set. I want to go here switch it off I go and end up on next key frame and the switch is on. So I’m going to up my shadows, up my mid-tone, up highlights, there we go and that looks like our light has come on.
Let’s go back to our first key frame here and park on it to the highlights. Go up to timeline say change key frame. I want to do this you’ll notice the interpolation changes. I want to make it straight, so it’s a constant instant change. Now we have an instant change. Now as you can see when I scroll through, boom. This switch come on it looks like the lights coming in the room. So let’s do this one time with a different clip. Let’s add the opposite effect, and this one I’m turning the light off so you can see there I put the switch off. So let’s park it right the frame right before I flip the switch. Go up to timeline, add key frame this will add key frame before you can do that make sure you’re in the primary end room or one of your either rooms, it won’t let you add a key frame in the set up room. So go to timeline, add key frame. Let me as you add the key frame. I’m going to hit my full my right arrow key and go forward to key frame as you can see the switch is off. Go to timeline add another key frame that adds our second key frame.
Now that I’ve set my second key frame, I’m going to go and open my shadow. I’ll bring it down, bring my mid-tones down, bring my highlights down like so. Now if go back to my previous key frame timeline change the key frame. I want to make sure it’s an instant change. I’m making the red line go straight across. Now you can see boom looks like I turn the light off the room.
So that is how your key frame in color for a mood change. In this one the light comes on as you can see boom. And this one the light goes off boom. And each one of them the switch was doing nothing. We have made the light change completely in color using key frames.
