Easing in & out of keyframes

Modified on Mon, 17 Oct 2022 at 12:18 PM

With the easing modes, you can accelerate or decelerate movements around keyframes. This can help draw attention to specific points of interest in the flythrough. The easing mode affects the segment between the selected and the following keyframe.

To view the impact of easing, preview the video by pressing Play, or switch to Inspect mode and review how the distribution of frames changes along the camera path.

A camera path without easing. 

NUBIGON offers three easing options: 

Easing in accelerates the movement away from the selected keyframe. Notice the growing gaps between white-dotted frames, indicating accelerating movement after the selected keyframe. 

Easing out decelerates the movement as the animation approaches the next keyframe. Notice the shrinking gaps between the white-dotted frames, indicating decelerating movement from the selected into the following keyframe. 

Easing in and out: combines both previous options; accelerating as the camera moves away from the selected keyframe (left) and decelerating as we approach the next keyframe (right). 

You can also adjust the strength of the easing. 

Sinusoidal easing is the weakest easing strength.

Quadratic, Cubic, Quartic, and Quintic are intermediate easing modes in growing strength order. Circular is the strongest easing strength.

Before configuring the deceleration and acceleration around keyframes, we recommend adjusting flythrough speed on the timeline. Moving keyframes closer together will speed up the flythrough, moving them farther apart will slow it down.
