i am having a bit of trouble grasping this. i sometimes use the timeline editor that effects a lot of functions at once, to make things seem less mechanical but i don’t really know what i’m doing. it’s trial and error. i’ve read the documentation and it’s kind of obtuse. anybody work with functions a lot, setting ease, etc, and have a quick second to give me a common sense rundown

I don’t have the experience to respond to your request with what you are looking for but in case you have not seen these you might gain some insight into the Timeline viewing these videos:

(a video may use Animate or A Pro but the information would still be useful)
