Join Rob Garrott for an in-depth discussion in this video 007 Using the Graph Editor to control animation, part of Design in Motion.
Hi! Rob Garrott here, and welcome to Design in Motion.…the weekly series where we explore important fundamentals in the world of motion graphics.…Now, getting precise control over your objects is essential to becoming a good animator.…The best way to control your animations in After Effects is with the Graph Editor.…By unlocking its power, your animations will only get better. Let's take a look.…So what I have here is a very simple animation of a ball bouncing down the stairs.…I've made this already ahead of time.…I have the actual Start file if you want to do this from scratch and animate the ball yourself.…
This has no keyframes in it at all.…These were just made by moving the position of ball over time and animating it.…let's RAM-Preview this to see what the motion actually looks like.…As it hits, each of the steps has a distinct pause in there, and that's…because of the way After Effects is interpreting the information in between the keyframes.…It knows where it needs to be at a particular keyframe but what happens in…
