OH! I just noticed....

d1 length was 3.71
d2 length was 1.39

actual lengths were 3710 and 1391

so other than cases when your path begins with an Extreme, very small arc, then continues on, this should be almost exactly the the correct length in pixels, if you multiply by 1000.

Now if I can figure out how to adjust the key based on that
I'm still learning with expressions, which is why I asked for clarification. I hate Thinking I know something (when it's actually wrong)

I just moved the end key based on the ratio I had.

For an expression, my guess is setting one key at zero, and that's it. Then do the rest through expressions. But I've always failed miserably when it comes to expressions based on time. (also I'm bad at math)
