Steps

    Click "OK" if the pop-up window appears. The "Add Snapback Action" option cancels the previous action on the timeline. This is much quicker than adjusting the settings to make the video look like as it has been before. The "Add Snapback Action" option is a more efficient way of undoing an action.
