What is 'easing'?

Learn more about the easing function for animation effects here.

Easing functions specify the rate of change of a parameter over time.

Objects in real life don’t just start and stop instantly, and almost never move at a constant speed. When we open a drawer, we first move it quickly and slow it down as it comes out. Drop something on the floor, and it will first accelerate downwards, and then bounce back up after hitting the floor. The same behavior can be applied on animations: you can make them accelerate and slow down at the end, instead of just a straight linear effect with constant speed.

In Moovly Studio, an easing function is available for the following animation effects: Fly in/out, Wedge in/out, Wipe in/out, Flow in/out and Bounce in/out. To switch easing on or off for one of these animations, look in the 'Animation Properties' panel of the selected object:
