The Key Info (Basic)
rollout or dialog changes the animation value, time, and interpolation
methods of one or more selected keys.
The following parameters
are available with the Bezier controller, which is the default position
controller. The Key Info controls for a TCB position controller
To set the tangent type for a key:
- Select an object and open
the Key Info (Basic) rollout.
- Use the arrows in the upper-left corner
of the dialog to select a key.
- Choose a tangent type from the In or
Out tangent flyouts.
- Key number
Shows the current key number.
Click the right or left arrows to go to the next or previous 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

of the key. For details, see

between the tangents of the current key or between the tangents
of the previous and next key.
