How does Motion Path easing work?
I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how the logic behind the motion path duration, easing direction and speed settings work together.
I have 4 identical images set up on a slide. The images are aligned left and each has a straight line motion path of the same length.
The duration is the same for each (5.25 s)
When I apply Ease In to the images and assign a different speed to each one (slow, medium, fast, very fast) this is what I see:
- The slow image starts first.
- The very fast image starts last.
- All images finish at the same time.
In this case, I expected to see the opposite result in that the image with the slow speed would ease in slowly and the one set to very fast would ease in the fastest. I also expected that all 4 would finish in 5.25 seconds which is the duration set for each motion path.
When I apply Ease In/Out this is what I see:
- Slow starts first but finishes last.
- Very fast starts last but finishes first.
In this case, I expected that the slowest image would ease in slowly and ease out slowly and very fast would ease in quickly and ease out quickly. I also expected that all 4 would finish in 5.25 seconds which clearly is not the case because they all finished at slightly different times.
When I apply Ease Out this is what I see:
Slow starts last and finishes last.
Very fast starts first and finishes first.
In this case, I expected each image to start and finish at the same time, but the ease out would be faster or slower depending on the speed setting.
