Hello, I haven't posted in quite a while however I need some expertise.:bowdown:

I will be working on an animation this week that depicts some traffic along a roadway. I need some vehicles to decelerate and make a smooth stop.

And of course after they stop at signal, then I will need them (vehicles) to accelerate smoothly to posted speed limit.

If some one could point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate their help.

All you need is under the hood of the graph editor...http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=85656.

You could select the keyframes that apply and add or decrease continuity in the graph editor for the basic movement you want. Add 1 or -1?

Don't forget the dope track. Sometimes you just need to move the keyframes.

Worley's VelAccel plugin from the Polk Collections works well here, too.

Dont forget you can edit quite well in the Graph editor. Simply select the points and change them into the Bezier curve mode. Toggling the handles will create a bendy cuvre which can create precise deceleration/acceleration.
