Animation is not linear, it seems to accelerate and decelerate

If I start a fan rotation and have 3,600 frames on loop, the fan blades will start slowly or stopped at 0 and spin faster until it reaches the max speed then start slowing down as the end frame approaches.

IClone has the ability to set the speed as Linear, Smooth, Step, etc.
Is there a way to have the speed be linear (constant)?


Hi there, if you open the Curve Editor from the Animation menu, you can select the keyframes and set their interpolation to Linear.


I had Curve Editor open but didn’t know what all the options meant.

Thank you.
