Okay, I dont' do a lot of animation in Ae--mostly other stuff--but I'm stumped here.
Ive got two layers--jpg's--a smaller one with text and a background with a pictrure of a beer mug.
I can animate the text layer to come in and touch the mug.
I can animate the text to move away from the mug--no problem.
The problem happens when I put THREE keyframes together in the same timeline.
The text moves towards the mug--into it--instead of moving away like the third keyframe commands.
What setting am I missing here?
The middle keframe represents where the text comes in and touches the mug.
Why does a third keyframe to the right of that deyframe make the layer continue moving to the right beforew it slows and goes left.
Is this new, or am insane?
This is probably an interpolation issue. Select your key frames and right click on them and select "Keyframe interpolation" and set it all the options to linear. They are probably on auto besier or something like that.
That should fix the problem. After that you can adjust speed and easy ease etc.
