Hi,

I love keyframing... and I understand a lot of it... but I want to totally control the bezier curves to make the footage do exactly what I want it to... but every time I grab a bezier handle everything just goes wonky.

I made a video (linked here) of my general experience which will show you pretty much where I'm up to.

What tends to typically occur when I venture into this world is either:

a). I slow down the end position/animation of a clip intentionally only to dramatically INCREASE the speed at the start unintentionally. Or

b). By shuttling the bezier handles on the 'duration' line in all kinds of configurations, I seem to effect the size or location of the clip rather than the speed with which it executes....

Basically I'm obvioulsy missing some vital schooling in the art of mastering keyframe beziers - and I can't find a YouTube tutorial or any online resource that covers this level of detail.

Please help! - And many thanks in advance.

The velocity curve is counter intuitive, I suggest you do your effect using only the scale curve. The velocity will adjust automatically according the curve you draw above it. Check this gif of how simple it is by using only the first curve.
