I'm starting to get mad because I have no idea what kind of wonky thing is going on in my After Effects project.
So I'm scaling and repositioning my composition at several points. A curious thing keeps happening though. My composition is moving it's self in between all my points even when they are the same on both sides. I'll have two keyframes with exactly the same positions at different times and in between those exact same keyframes I'll have the composition moving...I have no idea what's causing the issues. I have everything symetrical.
This is a common problem called ping pong. It's caused by Bezier interpretation of the motion keyframes. You can select the problematic keyframes and change interpretation in the timeline by right clicking or you may select the pen tool, select the modify vertex tool, then click on the keyframe in the composition window. There are tons of posts on this and the solution is also in the FAQ.
You can also change the default spatial interpretation in your preferences.
Thanks. I was just about to just erase all those keyframes out of fustration. Right clicked on them and they were actually on linear. Changed them to hold and that fixed the problem entirely.
