Changing the Pace
The keyframes of a shape tween can be easily moved along the Timeline in order to change the timing or pacing of the animation.
Moving a keyframe
The flame slowly transforms from one shape to another over a period of 40 frames. If you want the flame to make the shape change more rapidly, you need to move the keyframes closer together.
- Select the last keyframe of the shape tween in the flame layer.
- Click and drag the last keyframe to frame 6.
- Watch your animation by choosing Control > Play, or by clicking the Play button at the bottom of the Timeline.
The shape tween shortens.
The flame flickers quickly, then remains static until frame 40.
