Timeline Animation Curves in Unity 2021

No, I did not intend for there to be a quick 360 degree rotation in that two seconds of timeline animation of my mining ship.

Sometimes this is how I feel about the Unity editor, or let’s be real, software in general.

Luckily, there is a pretty easy fix for this!

And it doesn’t even involve slapping somebody at an awards show…

Timeline Animation Curves

“The Animation Window uses curves to display and edit the values of animated properties over time in an Animation Clip.”

It was pretty easy to identify the yellow curve as the outlier in the curves window.

Dragging the yellow line back up to the other lines was sufficient to correct the animation error on the rotation axes.

It is good to remember that we could have drilled down to the specific curve line though, thus removing any extraneous lines that might confuse things.

That’s it, I hope this helps!
