enter image description hereive set settings to default, however when i create a object(cube)and bezier curve, then add the object constraint follow path to the cube and the curve, it follows the curve perfectly until the end where it just keeps going in a straight line to infinity. i tried adding the clamp to the bezier curve, which stop it from going to infinity but i cant key frame the objects path and make it slow down or speed up at the begining and end.

  1. Select your object, add follow path constraint:

enter image description here

  1. go to your first frame (e.g. frame 0) -> enter value 0 in offset and keyframe it

enter image description here

  1. go to your last frame (e.g. frame 100) -> enter value -100 in offset and keyframe it

enter image description here

  1. if you now open the graph editor you will see it "automatically" smoothes your animation:

if it looks like this:

enter image description here

press "T"

enter image description here

and choose "bezier"

result:

  • $\begingroup$ then you didn't follow my steps exactly. Did you delete your constraints and created a new one? or provide your blend file so i can check it out. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ you have keyframed the object location/scale/rotation [1]: i.stack.imgur.com/dS86g.png, but NOT the offset value of the constraint [1]: i.stack.imgur.com/yidQz.png $\endgroup$
