A key frame defines a segment of the Vector3DAnimationUsingKeyFrames to which it belongs. Each key frame has a target Value and a KeyTime. The KeyTime specifies the time at which the key frame's Value should be reached. A key frame animates from the target value of the previous key frame to its own target value. It starts when the previous key frame ends and ends when its own key time is reached.
Discrete key frames like create sudden "jumps" between values (no interpolation). In other words, the animated property does not change until the key frame's key time is reached, at which point the animated property goes suddenly to the target value.
In the following example, Point3DAnimationUsingKeyFrames is used to animate the position of a PerspectiveCamera in a 3D scene. In addition, Vector3DAnimationUsingKeyFrames is used to animate the direction the camera is pointing in the 3D scene. Both of these animations use several key frames which create a series of animation effects:
DiscretePoint3DKeyFrame and are used to create sudden "jumps" between values (no interpolation).
SplinePoint3DKeyFrame and SplineVector3DKeyFrame are used to create a variable transition between values depending on the KeySpline property. In the example below, the animation starts off slow but toward the end of the time segment, speeds up exponentially.
