    Default question on how to make keys on frames

    I just got adobe after effects and im not to sure how to do everything.I was on a website that tells people how to make diffrent transitions and what not on adobe after effects. It had instructions on how to make text turn into smoke and dissaper. The part i have absolutley no clue on what to do is when it tells you to make a key on a frame.

    it says:

    On frame 1: make a key for Size: 15
    On frame 30: make a key for Amount to be 0
    On frame 75: set the first key for Evolution: -38
    On frame 250 make another key for Amount with the value -460, Size: 200 and Evolution: 275.

    im not sure how to do that, if anyone could be of any help i would be appreciate it.
    many pardons to ye

    I know that tutorial - Moooo! but haven't worked through it.

    The part you are referring to is referring to the 'Cult Effects Turbulent Displace' plugin. The use of the term key may prove to be specific to that plugin but I suspect the use of the term 'key' is synonymous with 'keyframe' so the line
    On frame 30: make a key for Amount to be 0
    simply means create a keyframe on frame 30 and change the 'Amount' property of the plugin/effect to 0.

    That's my best guess, not being an AE expert.
