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.

  1. Select the last keyframe of the shape tween in the flame layer.
  2. Click and drag the last keyframe to frame 6.
  3. The shape tween shortens.

  4. Watch your animation by choosing Control > Play, or by clicking the Play button at the bottom of the Timeline.

The flame flickers quickly, then remains static until frame 40.
