You need at least four keyframes:
1. The first one to set up your starting point.
2. The second one - to set up a value in between (ease in the keyframe to get smooth motion).
3. The third one with the same value as the second one (ease out the keyframe to get smooth motion).
4. The fourth one - to set up your final point.
