Keyframes won't work

Hi,

I am currently working on a project and I tried to use keyframes, which won't work. This is the first time using Premiere Pro CC 2018, I never had the problem on the CC 2017 version. But now to my problem: When I create two keyframes, for example getting the opacity from 100 to 0, in the effects panel the opacity changes over time like it is supposed to, but not in the video. Even when rendering the video the effect doesn't happen... It always takes the first keyframe value and then applys it to the video, but no further changes are made by the second keyframe.

I hope I made myself clear...

Thanks

When Premiere is acting weird best is to trash preferences:hold down shift+alt while opening Premiere (this shortcut will also reset plugin cache).

Thank you for trying to help! Unfortunately this problem is a little more frustrating than just visualizing the keyframes.

The keyframes are showing up, both in the effect control panel, as well as the timeline.

The problem is that the program is refusing to show the animation that you specify (from one keyframe to the next).

I've encountered this problem with almost every edit in the last four months. For most cases, I've found that a simple nest or new sequence will let you continue editing, but this isn't an option if you need to change the positioning or scaling of the clip you're working with.

It's also annoying for workflow when you have to nest everything in order to continue editing.

I just built a new editing PC last summer that ran Premiere animations just fine up until November.

I also encounter the same problems on different PCs that I use for work (even more powerful than mine).

I hope they can figure this out, as it seems a lot of people are having the same issue.

Although this post was dated almost three years prior, the fix worked for me!  Spent two hours trying to keyframe a picture and was getting SOOO frustrated.  Found this community and Voila.  Now, hope it stays fixed.  That would be Premiere Pro 2020.

I was going crazy too, and then I realized the problem went away when I shut off the paintbox effect I had on to create a border.

This just deleted all my projects. I saved my project before doing this and I'm very disappointed it was my very first project I worked on for 7+ hours just gone. Anyway I can get it back?

I was literally ready to cry, break my machine and then cry A LOT MORE!  For some reason, this worked--but this is not what I normally do for keyframes.  THANK YOU ALL!!

The only solution that worked for me was "nesting the clip"...that works fine now

Try it! Hope it helps
