Represents timing properties for an animation effect.


Use the following read/write properties of the Timing object to manipulate animation timing effects.

Use this propertyTo change this...
AcceleratePercentage of the duration over which acceleration should take place
AutoReverseWhether an effect should play forward and then reverse, thereby doubling the duration
DeceleratePercentage of the duration over which acceleration should take place
DurationLength of animation (in seconds)
RepeatCountNumber of times to repeat the animation
RepeatDurationHow long should the repeats last (in seconds)
RestartRestart behavior of an animation node
RewindAtEndWhether an objects return to its beginning position after an effect has ended
SmoothStartWhether an effect accelerates when it starts
SmoothEndWhether an effect decelerates when it ends
TriggerDelayTimeDelay time from when the trigger is enabled (in seconds)
TriggerShapeWhich shape is associated with the timing effect
TriggerTypeHow the timing effect is triggered


To return a Timing object, use theTimingproperty of the AnimationBehavior or Effect object. The following example sets timing duration information for the main animation.

ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange(1).TimeLine.MainSequence(1).Timing.Duration = 5
