What frames should i keyframe to animate?
Hey, I have a question for you guys :D
When animating in SFM what interval in the graph editor of keyframes do you use?
Like an example will be skip 1 so 1-3-5-7-8 if you understand, i tried out doing that skip 1 one which is used for animating running but makes everything too fast.
Any ideas of a good fluid interval or one that you use which turns out fluid.
Thanks

I never keyframe that much unless i'm trying to make a character do a flip (cause the auto movement system craps itself when trying to do a flip or back flip) other then that i only keyframe where i need to.

Keyframe when you need to. There's no particular pattern. Also, keyframe differently between individual bones for more realistic movement.
Keyframe at different 'poses', essentially. To get a realistic animation, you'll need plenty of keyframes, but it depends on context.
