Hi all

Normally a keyframe is diamond shaped.
When I Ctrl+Alt+Click a keyframe it becomes arrowshaped
When I Control+Click a keyframe it becomes circleshaped

I tried searching for it, but without luck.
Can anyone please explain what those special two modes are?

Thanks in advance

Alex,

The circular keyframe is a roaming keyframe. The arrow one might be a hold keyframe. Search for these in help and you should find out all you need to know. Easy-ease keyframes are worth knowing about too.

Thanks, now at least I know what they are called. But the hold keyframe I actually knew about - I just forgot.

Thanks :)

This page [link] covers it along with a lot of other useful info. It's in the help file under Animation and Keyframes.
