Motion behavior properties

Specify a Motion behavior to control how the object property transitions from the start value to the end value of the selected segment.

Motion Behavior Setting

Definition

Constant

This is the default behavior. The property value changes in equal increments from the start value to the end value.

Accelerating

This behavior speeds up (accelerates) the rate of transition from start value to end value when the Acceleration value is positive, or slows down (decelerates) the rate of transition when the value is negative.

Oscillating

This behavior takes a constant path between the start and end values and swings the property value back and forth over that path as the animation progresses to the end value. The number of times it swings is set by the Period count. Attenuation determines the significance of the dampening factor and Amplitude determines the magnitude of the value change for each swing.

Overshoot

This behavior causes the property value to exceed the end value, then return past the end value in the other direction. This process is repeated as specified by the Period count. Attenuation determines the significance of the dampening factor and Amplitude determines the length of the overshoot. Speed determines over what portion of the animation the effect occurs; a value of 10 is balanced, under 10 is weighted toward the first frame, and over 10 is weighted towards the last frame.

Discrete

This behavior plots reference points at key frames only. Essentially, there is no transition between frames at all; the object retains the start value until the key frame is reached, then the end value is applied to the object property.
