## Keyframing in Lens Distortion Not Smooth

Hello everyone.

For a project I'm trying to keyframe the lens distortion effect to slowly decrease. Over about 250 frames in 60fps video, the curvature changes from 0 to -20. Instead of a smooth animation, every time the curvature lowers a digit the distortion jumps. I want a nice smooth transition from 0 to -20, and I can't figure out why it is only decreasing one integer at a time, instead of in decimals.

What's happening is that I'm decreasing the variable by a small amount over a relatively long period of time, which I assume causes the jumpiness of the animation.

I'm guessing the keyframing mechanic of the Lens Distortion effect can't decrease or increase by decimals, only integers, because when I tried to input a decimal it rounded to the nearest integer, but if there is a way to allow it to decrease by decimals that would be helpful.

Please let me know if there is a fix to this, I've attached a picture of the motion graph, and thank you in advance.
