Arvid Schneider provides some simple tips for animating with the Maya Graph Editor, and while largely set for beginners to Maya, Animation and Maya the Graph Editor, Arvid notes that even if you are familiar with Maya’s Graph Editor, perhaps you may come across a tip or two that you may have missed before.

With this short introduction to animating a bouncing ball, I want to show you some quick tricks in creating keyframes, changing values in the graph editor, and some other tricks

Arvid shows how to create keyframes in the Graph Editor, and how to change values, but he also shows the tips over the course of animating a simple ball bounce in Maya, which is a great overview of the animation workflow as well.
