In this tutorial, you'll learn how to adjust keyframe interpolation in Cinema 4D - i.e. how to control what happens to an object's animation between the keyframes. By default, Cinema 4D applies ease-in and ease-out to the motion of objects, meaning that they will speed up at the start and then slow down at the end. You can change this by adjusting an F-Curve (Function-Curve).
First, you'll have a quick run-through of how to record keyframes in Cinema 4D. Then you'll access the F-Curve, which controls the animation between the keyframes. You'll adjust the F-Curve to radically alter away from the default ease-in and ease-out, such as to get an object to move at constant speed.
