> i cant find anything on slowing down graphics online. Lots on slowing down footage but nothing on slowing down an animation.
Are you finding that applying the techniques described for footage aren't working for graphics? If so, please be specific about where you're hitting problems.
General re-timing features are discussed here:

Welcome to the family. AE is big, really big. You have no idea how big.
These are two easy ways to slow down animations. They have different results but they are easy and then you can start to experiment on your own.
1. Make your composition using a frame rate of 60 or 120 frames/second. Render. Import the movie and place it in your new comp. Use time remapping controls to adjust the playback speed in your new comp. The higher frame rate allows fabulously buttery smooth slow motion.
2. Precomp the layers (look it up and learn it, it's a basic tool you will use all the time) your timeline. Apply time remapping to the precomp.
Try to enjoy learning AE. It's hard.
I wasn't aware that was there but its helped.
Ricks suggestion put me intouch with the Speed Graph Editor which has helped. I think im going to be spending a fair bit of time with trial and error and a steep learning curve.
Your right AE is huge. I managed to solve my query by experimenting with the Speed Graph editor. Not as precise as I wanted but I think thats me rather than the method used. Ive been getting used to Pre-Comping as im going and im sure i'll pick up all the nuances as I delve deeper into AE. Thanks for the reply.
