Re: Motion INs and OUTs - Advanced Keyframing Techniques

Another great tut. Stupid Q: so I want to replace a shape with an object that say has the same behavior as the diamond in this tutorial (object pops out of box, instead of diamond). How do I do that, as I don't see a well in the shape properties. Or do I try and copy the keyframes from the diamond and paste them somewhere in the keyframe properties window of the object. Ha! and thx.
