Creating a Stepped Velocity

You can create a stepped curve to hold the same value over a selected number of frames. This works well when you are animating drawings on 2's, for example, and you want to hold the same value for a function over those two frames.

To hold the same value over several frames:

1. Click the Hold Value Editor button.

The Hold Value editor opens.

2. In the Hold Value Editor, enter the following values:
Start: Enter the starting frame for the effect.
Stop: Enter the last frame for the effect.
Step: Enter the number of frames to hold the value.

The function curve is updated based on the values you entered.

You can reshape the curve to create a linear velocity, so that the values are interpolated (tweened) consistently between keyframes. That is, there is no acceleration in the effect.
