I am working on an animation where a wheel is rotating. This has been done using the 'cycles' modifier on an F-Curve. Now I want it to slowly start up a few seconds into the video, and from frame X on, it should rotate at constant speed.
Adding the accelerating animation is quite simply done by inserting a keyframe before the rotation and adjusting the graph accordingly. However, the cycles modifier insists on repeating the acceleration part of the curve, too. In my case, I need the modifier to only repeat the constant rotation. I have not found a way to restrict the keyframes that should be repeated with the 'restrict frame range' settings. Can this be done and I just haven't seen it?
