Summary: In this video, We will continue our discussion of animation. In the previous video, we saw how to create a keyframe and a storyboard. Today, we will expand on that knowledge by creating three controls on the screen and animate them using the same process. However, in addition we will add the concepts of easing functions and keysplines. After we create the animation for each object, we can select the ending part of each animation. That will display new set of properties that we can change. One of those properties in the easing function. These functions are what the animation will use while animating. Each function has a graph to illustrate how it works. In addition to that there are properties for these functions so we can tweak the function based on our needs. We will do couple of those. Then, there is the keyspline. With that you can create your own function. There are handles and x and y coordinates that help in the process. We will apply this to the last stop to show how it works.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
