Houdini 17.0 Animation

Auto-key

Auto-key automatically adds keyframes for any parameters you change.

Auto-key is like having Houdini automatically press K (keyframe) for you when you make a change. So, it automatically sets keys when you change parameters with existing channels.

This lets you scrub the playbar, move objects, pose characters, etc. without having to remember to set or commit keys. However, you can also accidentally create unintended keys/animation.

Auto-key is related to two other preferences under Edit ▸ Preferences ▸ Animation:
