Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating breakdown keys, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Maya has a second type of key called the Breakdown key.…Now this can be very useful, because it automatically adjusts, depending…upon how you adjust the rest of the keys in the animation.…So let's take this simple spaceship here, and…I'm going to set a key at, say, frame 10.…I'm going to go ahead and move this back and set a key.…And then go ahead and move it forward and set a key.…So, at frame 10 and at frame 30, I have keys.…So I'm going to go to frame 20 and instead…of setting a key, I'm going to go Animate, Set Breakdown.…
And when I do that, it creates this additional key.…Now this key shows up as green on the timeline.…So, if I want, I can actually move that.…Let's go ahead and actually add a little bit…more to that key, and just go Set Breakdown.…So now I've got this key in the middle.…Now the nice thing about this Breakdown key is that it's looking at…the keys on either side of it, and it's trying to stay in between.…So, if I select this key here by shift selecting…on frame 30, I can drag this left and right.…
