Better looking motion

If you’re animating a parameter, especially motion, try right-clicking and choosing “Ease In/Out”. This will change the animation speed from linear (start, constant speed, stop) to a logarithmic (start, get up to speed, slow down, stop). This adds a much more natural look to anything you animate: Scale, Rotation, Position, Opacity, even specific filter parameters. This works just fine in its default setting, but you’ll notice a Bezier handle for further fine tuning. Any keyframe point you’ve made can be right-clicked and this command can be chosen. Choose “Corner” to set it back to a linear animation. In Motion and After Effects there are more powerful presets for your Keyframes: Ease Out, Ease In, Easy Ease, etc.
