Top Tip These Keyframe controllers can seem very confusing to someone new to animation. The simplest way to look at it is: The more vertical a graph line is; the faster the movement. And the more horizontal; the slower the movement. So a horizontal line is a hold, and a vertical line represents a sudden transition from one frame to the next. Duplicate this key by Shift-moving it and drag the new key to frame 20. Change the Controllers to Step and Linear. 32). Now play your animation again and you will see that the leg you have controlled will have a much more realistic feel to its motion.

At 24 fps each 100 frames is roughly equal to 4 seconds. Later on in the book we will be talking about cutting down on file sizes, which will mean reducing the frame rate. Because 3D animation data are represented by Bezier curves, unless we control the Keyframes, the animation will float from one Keyframe to the next. Fortunately there are some easy tools to control this. Select a leg from the turtle. You should have created 3 Keyframes at 0, 15 and 30. Take the middle Keyframe at 15 and slide it back to frame 10.

Sometimes we use Freehand but Flash has got strong graphic tools too. Were there any specific problems you had to overcome? We have to take care of a small file size and good performance. Does it vary from project to project? Yes, one time the file size makes the problems and the other time it is the performance A. There is rarely a production without one of the two problems.
