Hi! New to Hitfilm and animation in general!
Lets say I want a plain, rectangular plane to quickly rise, slow to a crawl, then shoot off without ever "stopping". I tried doing it simply by using 4 key frames and putting them in manual bezier, but keyframe 2 and 3 always have a "stop". I've tried doing it in 2 key frames, but I can't seem to manipulate the curve enough to change the rate of change to what I want. Think a car slowing down to a crawl to see an accident on the side of the highway before growing bored and driving off again- that's what I'm picturing.
When I make the end product, I want 3 such rectangles moving from the top, 3 from the bottom in the first second, momentarily slowing as they meet in the middle to unmask text in lower thirds for two seconds, then shooting off without changing direction in the 4th second. Any help or advice appreciated! Really loving this software!
