How can I keyframe across multiple clips/

This might be a super easy question, but I just can't figure it out! I'm doing a stop motion video and would like to pan the keyframe left and right during a sword fight I'm working on. I have done keyframing many times within a single clip, but I'd like to do one across 4 or 5 pictures.

 

So I'd start it on pic 1 and then slowly pan left to pic 4. And then pan back to the right from 5 to 8 as an example.

 

Can anyone please help me with this? Thank you!!

I'm not sure I understand your question.  If I do, and it were me, I would create an intermediate complete clip from the four or five pictures.  Put them in a separate project, output the clip and then put that clip into the primary project fro keyframing.

See the thing is that I kind of messed up on it... I'm doing it in portrait and have never done it in portrait mode before.

 

So it's a bit zoomed in, and a few frames in, they step too much to the left, so I need to compensate by scrolling the camera over. Then I moved them too much to the right so I have to scroll it back.

 

I manually adjusted the camera each clip to move with the figures, but it's a sharp move each frame. I'd love it to pan with the characters... so I start a keyframe and then have it gradually move left over 4 pictures. And then the same with back to the right.

 

If I zoom out, it's super easy, but I didn't take the pics close enough, so it doesn't look that good when it's zoomed out.

Place a Adjustment layer over several clips. Add the transform effect and keyframe the anchor point.

I've never used an adjustment layer... I just tried adding one and I have absolutely no clue how it works! I see 9 different options in the transform section for effects, but none seem to help me with the motion?


I'm definitely doing something wrong on it. I tried watching some Youtube videos, but for adjustment layers, they mostly seem for colors and stuff, I can't find any for motion.

I did not say motion: I said ANCHOR POINT.

 

edit:

 

1. place adjustment layer over footage in timeline

2. go to effects panel

3. select Transform from Distort

4. drop this on the Adjustment layer.

5. keyframe Anchor Point of the Transform effect on the Adjustment layer.
