View Full Version : to keyframe or not?

05-03-2004, 12:56 PM
I'm a newbie so my question may seem a bit trite........

I want an object to stop in mid motion for a period of time then continue to it's final position.

I've been trying to accomplish this with keyframing and it seems to be a bit of a pain since you get a sort of a backlash affect.

You probably need to read up on splines in the graph editor. The default splines will exhibit that behavior. If you set the splines between your two keys (where the motion stops) to linear you should be good to go.

Not sure exactly, but, have you tried adjusting the tension control in the 'graph editor' or altering the type of motion from TCB to linear or any of the others. Have a play.
Hope this helps
