Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to the Graph Editor, part of After Effects CC 2019 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] Animation is represented in After Effects…in a few different ways.…We see an animation taking place in the Composition window,…where our layers move around the screen,…and we see an animation expressed…as keyframes in the timeline…via the default layer bar mode,…where layers appear as colored bars…that are stacked on top of each other.…After Effects has another method to visualize our animation…in what's known as the Graph Editor.…And so, to get to the Graph Editor,…let's click on this button right here.…And you notice, there's nothing in here,…and that's because we have to have a layer selected…with a property that has keyframed animation.…
So let's select our position keyframes here,…and this is just our linear base runner guy…that runs across.…And it's important to note that…the Graph Editor is a place where…the interpolation keyframes can be viewed…as either a speed change,…how fast an animation is taking place,…or as a change in value for a given parameter.…So really, it has two functions,…this Graph Editor and this view…
