Now, let's use the Graph Editor to refine our animation, change the keyframe interpolation and velocity, and get something different happening besides just my normal linear keyframes. I am going to go ahead and drag my rotation value here and go ahead have it finish later like I was doing earlier, and rotate more so it has a larger value range. I'll RAM-preview that. Okay, but the problem here is that that snowflake keeps spinning well after it lands and then stops. Let's say I want to ease into that final position. There is a couple of ways of doing that.

One, as you may remember from an earlier movie, you can select a keyframe, then use the Easy Ease keyframe type. You can ease both directions or just Ease into the keyframe. Once I do that, I get an influence handle that decides how it's going to interpolate into that value. I'll RAM-preview. You see now that the rotation gradually just comes to a halt here at the end of the animation. Easy Ease is just a default value;...
