Record Active Objects with F9

Quickly add keyframes to active objects by pressing F9. This will keyframe the position, rotation and scale of an active object, but if you are trying to focus on a single property you can add a keyframe by Command + Left Clicking on the Record button (that little gray circle next to nearly every property in Cinema4D). F9 is very useful if you are roughing in animation for a fast and easy preview. You can always go back and fine tune your animation curves after setting the keyframes with F9. Enjoy!
