Hi, I am currently working on After Effects CS3. While animating one of my graphics( psd file) in AE , I get this popular boomerang effect trouble.
My problem is that on frame 1, I keyed my graphic with following values :
187.0, -294.0, 1151.0
On frame 2, I keyed the graphic with following values:
187.0, -294.0, 991.0
Only 'Z' position has been assigned different values in both frames.
On 'X' position the value is 187.0 on both frames. But in between both these frames 'X' value keeps on changing ( which I don't want to have).
I can't use "Toggle hold keyframe" , because if do this on frame 1, then along with 'X' position 'Z' position would also get hold.
What should I do if I want to hold only 'X' position on frame 1 and not 'Z' position along with it.
You can make an additional keyframe if you want: place the new keyframe at the point where you want motion to resume. Use Toggle Hold Keyframe on the one where the motion should stop. The Boomerang effect should disappear.
Or you could also simply adjust the Bezier Path Handles on your current keyframes to get rid of the unwanted motion.
