We’ve all been there: you want a layer to move around, stay still, then move again. But when the layer is supposed to stay still, it drifts around randomly before returning to its starting point. It’s frustrating, to say the least. This is a result of After Effects assuming it knows better than you. Don’t let After Effects tell you what you want. It’s time you understood what Spatial Interpolation is and how to keep After Effects in check.
