Add keyframes color-correcting a clip

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I'm using Final Cut Pro 10.1.4 on an iMac with Yosemite 10.10.1.
When I try adding multiple sequential color corrections in a single clip, there is no way to add keyframes to each correction.
In the video inspector the add keyframe symbol does not appear.
In the show video animation window, if I clik "control k" the keyframe symbol does appear,  but if I add more than 1 keyframe only the last one is active, so I can only correct the entire clip.
Is there any way to add more than 1 sequential correction  using keyframes, instead of cutting che clip into multiple segment and correcting each one of them?

I have an RGB Channel Mixer that can be keyframed.
First, I recommend turning on Video Scopes (RGB Parade) and turning off the Color board for the title (you do not want to accidentally color grade the title).
RGB Channel Mixer is a title effect, so just drag it over the region you need to color "mix". You can use this effect in conjunction with the color board for the storyline clip. (Do not color correct the channel mixer!
You can toggle the view with the channel mixer selected — type 'v'.
You can download it here: RGB Channel Mixer
It won't hurt to try it and if you don't like it - just delete it. (It's still a bit of an experiment at this point.)
The effect works by mixing the red, green and blue channels separately against a black background solid. The Amount values use opacity to change the mix. The Boost values are different. They add a little "gain" in the channel. There's a subtle difference between the two. Contrast and Brightness controls are added to help with the lack of range assist (shadow, mids, highlights).
