Controling speed in the Motion path ?

The character (a hen) in my Motion Path is walking too fast.
How can I set the speed I want for the walk?
I have studied the Function Editor in the User Guide, and I have followed the instructions, but I don’t get it. Can someone please explain step by step how to do this.

Well, the speed of your walk-cycle is determined by the number of frames for each step…
The Function Editor can’t slow down or speed up a walk-cycle on its own…

Using a Motion Path, the Function Editor allows some “Velocity” / “Ease In / Ease Out” possibility,
making the objects movement along the Motion Path slightly slower or faster…

If you like, here is a short video demonstration:
(no sound, it’s all fairly easy and straight forward)

Thank you, this was a great help for me.
Now it’s all clear.
