Recording Keyframes During Playback in Motion 2

A quick way to animate an object in your Motion project is to record the changes that you make to the parameters of the object during playback. You can also set how the keyframes are to be recorded by going into the recording options by navigating to Mark > Recording Options in the Motion main menu. Your choices are Reduced and Peaks Only. The Reduced option will create a more simple curve by adding fewer keyframes and the Peaks Only option will only record keyframes for large parameter shifts such as a sharp change in direction.
