Animating Perpetual Motion with F-Curves

  • Software:Blender 2.72  ·
  • Difficulty:Intermediate

Animating can be a tedious process at times, especially when it comes to repeated or continuous actions. However, there are ways to make it easier and faster - if you know the right tricks! In this tutorial, we'll cover how to quickly and efficiently deal with animation, demonstrating how to work with f-curves in the graph editor and using it to animate an ocean that churns endlessly, a light that flashes until you need it to stop and a propeller that can rotate hundreds of times using only two key frames.
