Temporal interpolations, let you control how a value changes over time as it goes from the start, to end end value. The extremes are called In and Out. The Motype menu provides you with five differents methods.
Linear The velocity is constant from the Start to end point.If you want to cut in the movement this is an ideal interpolation.
Quadratic This method offers a smooth start (Quadratic-In) or a smooth End (Quadratic-Out). You can combine these two properties with Quadratic In-Out.
Quadratic In - Out
Cubic This method has a very sweet acceleration (Cubic-In) or deceleration (Cubic-out).This is the favorite curve for beautifull progressive Ending movement.
Cubic In - Out
Exponential In - Out
Exponential This is an extreme curve that provides powerfull acceleration (Exponential-In) or very soft end motion (Exponential-out).
Sinusoidal This method is an Ease in or Ease out (like Quadratic), but with a somewhat different curve.
Sinusoidal In - Out
