Easy easing

Easing allows you to control the speed of a tween to produce realistic motion with pleasing effects. Applying Eases on motion tweens allows you to manipulate the beginning and the end parts of an animation to cause a more natural movement of the object. For example, one of the many common uses of easing is to add realistic acceleration and deceleration at the ends of the motion path of an object. In a nut shell, Animate CC makes alters to the rate of change of the value of Property depending on the Ease applied to it.
