Modify Ease In + Ease Out Curves
on Jul 27, 2013 at 7:21:59 pm

Is this possible? If I want an element to ease in with a weight of 70% of the existing curve and ease out at say 30%, can I do it?

Or is it just Ease In and Ease Out with no access to the actual curves? I've looked but can't seem to find them, I'm hopeful I've just missed it somewhere.

Best,
Sandeep.

If you want that level of control, keyframe the Opacity parameter and then adjust the keyframe curves in the Keyframe Editor, rather than using a behavior.

Hi Mark,

That isn't quite what I want, so I have put in a feature request with Apple. I've also requested a lot of other stuff, so I hope someone there is actually reading the submissions.

Btw, I've learnt an awful lot from you through Ripple Training and the Podcasts, so thank you!

Regards,
Sandeep.

You could breaking the handles on the keyframe and adjusting them separately.

Why not simply convert the ease keyframes to bezier interpolation and then drag out the handle asymmetrically to get the effect you want? (Not sure you would want to break the handles as that would give you a noticeably jump rather than an ease type animation.)



Or is that not what you mean?

Too fiddly. This is how I ended up doing it after I posted this question, but when you're trying out various in+out combinations and the client says 'let's see it at 65 35 again', you actually have to go and manipulate the handles again, as opposed to just keying in the numbers. And with savvy clients, it needs to be just right every time, as if it's off even a little, they can tell.

Personally, I feel that manipulating the curve handles is great for when you're finessing your animations, but when you're in look dev, it's a drag, and has an impact on the interactivity of the process. And as everything's so fast in Motion, slow-downs are even more obvious than in say something like AE.

Fair enough - I can see how that could be a problem.
