keys and frames in a walk

Hello there,

I was trying to create a walk in synfig as explained in *The Animator Survival Kit". I create the first pose in frame one, then I changed to animation mode and I did the movement for frame 17. After that I started with frame 9. When I checked, I realized the frame 17 was transformed automatically by synfig.

I wanted to ask what I did wrong? Shall I mark the frames I modified as Keys? Are the Keys in synfig the same as the breakdowns in Richard Williams’ book?


Sound like what happens to me when I don’t keep track of “animate mode”. Have a look for waypoints that you might have made accidentally and delete them.
