Don't know how long this has been around but Da_Duke pointed it out to me. It's a pretty powerful feature that allows you to have extra keys on a frame to control the shape of the curve in/out and position.

Just turn off "Allow key pass-through" in the graph editor and ctrl drag left mouse button up to 4 keys onto a frame.
Have fun.
Thanks Da_Duke

'Allow key pass-through' is turned off by default.

There's been lots of posts lately about bullet time, this seems like one plausable way of getting that type of effect...

Bullet time looks like such a cliché, it really makes me want to cringe when I see it in another pix. It's the same as that 'Crouching Tiger' jump kick which is popping up all over the place. What was the name of that 3D pix with the green monster?? Damn slipped my mind :-)

One use for this could be to animate a single camera with multiple shots. or simply to control a curve without converting to a spline key.

I wonder, if that's possible, is it possible to go backwards, so your green line would like a horseshoe laying on its side. That would make it easier to get some type of effects than it would be to copy keyframes...

meshmaster a curve can't go past a keys to make the shape you are thinking.
