Using maya, and three shapes by animating each by changing its keyframe.
Freeze transformations- can go back to original place
S key – keyframe
animation editor – graph editor- ALT and mouse button, autotangents- easy eases wavelength
Dope sheet( time adjustment )- where key changes occur- black points show where keyframes are- drag them down adjust time.
Graph Editor (tangents and smoothness)- straight lines – edit- delete by type-static channels- break tangents
