Procedures

To set the tangent type for a key:

  2. Use the arrows in the upper-left corner of the dialog to select a key.
  3. Choose a tangent type from the In or Out tangent flyouts.

Interface

Key number

Shows the current key number. Click the right or left arrows to go to the next or previous key.

Time

Specifies at what time the key occurs.

Time Lock

Prevents horizontal key movement in Track View Edit modes.

Value

Adjusts the position of the selected object at the current key.

NoteIn the Key Info dialog for the Bezier Scale controller, a Lock button is displayed beside the X Scale spinner. If you click Lock X, only the X value affects all three axes of scale. The Y and Z values are ignored and their function curves are not displayed. When X is locked, the Y and Z values aren't affected by changes in the X value. If you click Lock X when all three axes are at identical values, alter the X value, and then unlock X. The Y and Z values remain where they were while X retains its new value.
Key Tangent Flyouts

With Bezier controller types, sets the interpolation properties of the In tangent and Out tangent of the key. For details, see Tangent Types.

Tangent Copy buttons

Use the arrow buttons at either side of the Key Tangent flyouts to copy the tangent type between the tangents of the current key or between the tangents of the previous and next key.

  • The left arrow of the In tangent copies to the Out tangent of the previous key.
  • The right arrow of the In tangent copies to the Out tangent of the current key.
  • The left arrow of the Out tangent copies to the In tangent of the current key.
  • The right arrow of the Out tangent copies to the In tangent of the next key.
