On version 2.78 there are new keyframe types available on the timeline.





Can someone please explain how they are used? enter image description here

Are they only colors that display on the dopesheet with no other funcionalty?


They are only for visual distinguish regular keyframes from different animation events or states.Besides I would swear they were there earlier (just can't find them in 2.77). Although I found conversation on the topic from 2009 so it's definitely not a new feature. Check the manual for more info

    $\begingroup$ They are not new. Just the location is new. And it's a double menu entry now. The original menu can for example be found in the Dope Sheet editor in Key / Keyframe Type. $\endgroup$
