Not sure, I don't think so, but there are other ways to go about changing panel settings over time. You could take the video event you want to change and split it. On the left of the split, you grade it the way you'd want your first keyframe to look, then on the right, the last keyframe, then drag one over the other so they overlap, creating a fade. It will gradually transition from one set of parameters to the next. If you need more than one "keyframe", just add more splits and overlap those.

sound complicated if you plan to use it muliple times, but thank you for an idea

You can do that in the Color Corrector plugin:

@elmedin-o I usually do it the way @fr0sty suggests, splitting clips. Unless there are already allot of them. In that case I dup the tracks and do alternate grades at track level doing the crossfade between track-grades with composite envelopes. A related trick that helps with my multican projects is to save cgp parameters in presets to quickly assign them to recurring angles... do that allot with remote ptz footage shot with typically 3 or 4 zoom/angle preset positions, each calling for its own grade.

@Howard-Vigorita - You speak much good sense.

For some totally different logic: the color grading panel has the ability to export a LUT that is equivalent to the collection of the panel's settings. So you could create two different CG arrangements, export the two different LUTs, then apply them using two copies of the LUT filter effect, which is keyframeable, blending them or crossfading them as you wish. Unknown what that performance would be like.

I hope that the programmers team will improve this lack as soon as possible. Using Color Grading on a track has no sense without keyframes.

Another problem about Color Grading:
If I put tracks as compositing child, putting an FX on the Parent track, the FX will be applied on all the child tracks. This doesn't works with Color Grading.
