Chapter 14. Motion Settings > Smoothing Motion with Spatial Interpolation

Smoothing Motion with Spatial Interpolation

Ordinarily, a clip proceeds to and from keyframes directly, in straight lines. You can smooth sharp changes in direction, rotation, and distortion by selecting one of the smooth motion options. These options cause the clip to follow a rounder, smoother course.

To choose a smooth motion option:

1.
In the Motion Settings dialog box, check the box next to the Smooth Motion pull-down menu (Figure 14.40).

Smooth Motion— for the smallest amount of smoothing

Smooth More— for slightly more smoothing

Averaging Low— for a small amount of smoothing

Averaging Med— for a moderate amount of smoothing

Averaging High— for the highest amount of smoothing

If the Show Path option is checked, you can see the effects of the Smooth Motion options in the motion path (Figure 14.42).
