Hi guys, still quite new Blender but loving the program.
I’ve run into a problem when animating a fan blade. I found a short bit of advice on here to keep the fan blades running throughout the animation by using the IPO Curve Editor.
I select the keyframes, then go Curve>Extend Mode> Extrapolation and this turns the original keyframes into a never ending line. Meaning the blades turn forever.
This is great, but the blades move very slowly, quite lethargic and lack the energy I need for a massive output of power. Any suggestions on how I should be shaping the curve or setting the keyframes up in order for the fans to spin very quickly and constantly?
One problem I have which may be leading to this is that when I set the original keyframes the rotation of the blades seem to only turn once although I put several raotations in before setting the new keyframe. I think Blender is picking the shortest route to the new position but missing out the spins inbetween… does this make sense?
Thanks for your help guys.
