    Easy Ease on mac

    koaliekyle99 Level 1

      How do I get easy ease to work on After Effects?  I am using a mac.  I tried things in the system preferences and keyboard shortcuts but I am not able to do it.  Please provide clear instructions, thanks.

          Hey koaliekyle99,

           

          You can do this several ways,

           

          Right-click the keyframe, Keyframe Assistant --> Easy Ease

           

          Up top in the menus go to Animation --> Keyframe Assistant --> Easy Ease

           

          Or just press F9. If you have a keyboard without the numPad, press Fn+F9

           

          Hope that helps!

            Right click on a keyframe, go to Keyframe Assistant, click easy ease. The keyframes must be yellow.

             

            Select a keyframe in the timeline and press F9

            If F9 does not work check your System Preferences>Keyboard and make sure you don't have F9 assigned to another shortcut.

            Also check After Effects>Preferences>General and make sure Use System Shortcut keys is selected.

             

            If none of that works tell us or show us how your system shortcuts are set up. Just using the defaults should do it.

              Trying to go up top in the menus go to Animation --> Keyframe Assistant --> Easy Ease, same thing happens when right-clicking the keyframe.

              Then I tried to press F9 and fn+F9 with these settings but nothing happened...

                Did this ever work? If it did, what changed? What version and point number of AE?

                 

                Something is fouled up with your installation. The first thing to try is to close AE and then hold down Cmnd/Ctrl + Alt/Option + Shift and Start AE by clicking the app in the Applications folder or the Dock. You will have the option of deleting the Preferences file. Take it.

                 

                If that doesn't solve the problem check for updates.

                 

                If that does not work then uninstall AE using the Uninstall After Effects app in the Application/Adobe After Effects folder.

                 

                If that doesn't work, run the Adobe Cleaner tool (Google will take you right there) and re-install again.

                  Ok.

                  Also, do you know when I'm using the rectangular tool, how I delete a rectangle? (not from the timeline, but when I am in a different frame so I can make a new rectangle)

                    Alright, what you have to do is highlight whatever keyframes you want to easy ease. After you highlight them, right click them and select keyframe interpolation. Once you see that menu select keyframe type and choose Bezier. Bezier is the equivalent to easy ease.
