    bezier in BCC P&Z

    I'm trying to use the BCC pan and zoom. I'm using Bezier to go from key frame to key frame but on the last 2 seconds I want to "hold". I'm using the Transform A work flow.

    I understand that the choice to use Bezier applies to all the points on a particular parameter. But isn't there a simple way to hold the last two points. I tried to fiddle with the bezier handles but there is always the drift between the points. Is there a way to do this ?

    Re: bezier in BCC P&Z

    The drift between the last two points may be because, if you just grab a bezier handle on one side of a keyframe, whatever you do is mirrored on the other side. And since you've adjusted the handles on the penultimate point, you're affecting the motion out of that point in the same way as you've affected the motion into it. The trick is to deal with the two bexier handles differently - essentially you want to shorten / elminate the handle length on the right-hand side of the point.  Using one of the modifiers (alt? ctrl? Can't recall...) will allow you to shorten one handle independantly.

    BTW, the 'spline' setting for keyframes doesn't produce this effect, and the motion will be stable between your last two keyframes, if they're identical.
