A long time ago, I promissed this tutorial that a lot of people was expecting. Finally it's here! The basics about animation in Blender. We'll talk about inserting keyframes, and how to control them with the Dopesheet. Also, how to set the interpolations accurately by using the Graph editors to control the animation curves! At the end of the tutorial, we animate a bouncing ball, to see a practical exercise applying the techniques learnt on the tutorial itself. Enjoy!
