In the next steps you’ll
examine the animation curve resulting from the driven keys you’ve
set. If you are unfamiliar with animation curves and the Graph
Lesson 1: Keyframes and the Graph Editor.
To view the set driven key results in
the Graph Editor
- Select the door.
To display the animation
curve for a driven key in the Graph Editor,
you must select the object containing the driven attribute,
not the object containing the driving attribute.
- Select Window > Animation
Editors > Graph Editor.
- From the Graph
Editor, select View > Frame All.
The Graph Editor shows the driven
keys that link the door’s TranslateY value
to the ball’s Translate Z value. An example
The column of numbers
on the left lists the driven attribute values. The row at the bottom
lists driver attribute values. The animation curve shows the relationship
between the values—the door’s Translate Y value
rises as the ball’s Translate Z value approaches
You can use the Graph
Editor to edit the shape of the curve to make the door
rise faster, slower, and higher as the ball approaches it.
