Smooth between fast and slow animation
on May 30, 2019 at 8:25:30 pm

I'm working on a few animations and I keep running into the same issue.

Let's say I want an element to slide into frame very quickly with a steep custom bezier animation that takes, say 12 frames. Then for the next 10 seconds, I want it to keep moving very slightly with a gentle linear animation in the same direction.

The issue I have is that after the quick animation, it never quite feels like a smooth transition into the slow linear animation. It always feels like it comes to a sharp stop and then slowly starts moving again. I've tried playing around with the graph, but I feel like I can never quite get it to feel perfectly smooth. Is there a way to smooth out the transition between a fast and slow animation?

Keyframe 1: Linear
Keyframe 2: Bezier
Keyframe 3: Linear

That'll do the trick.
