C4D QuickTip #03AutoKeyFrame can be your friend: don't abuse the F9 Key
The problem most people have when using the autokeyframe functions is that they're creating keyframes for attributes that don't really need to be animated. If you keep that up, you'll wind up with so many keyframes in your timeline, you won't know what to do.
So some use it too much. There are others who put an outright BAN on the autokeyframe. Oldschool smackdown style... "Won't touch it. Never will."
I hope that this little video tutorial about C4D will help you to use it when you need to. It's a good thing (that's why it's in there). Use it wisely.
