Jesse Liberty returns to the podcast to explain some of the new features found in Silverlight 3. This week, we talk about Animation Easing.  Easing has been around since Silverlight 2, but in Silverlight 3 it gets quite a makeover.  Primarily, it becomes much… easier… to use.

What’s it For?

Easing functions allow us to specify how an animation changes over time.

Example

Easing can be used to put a bounce into an animation.

Surprising Fact

Easing has surprising bang for the buck.  It makes applications feel much more natural.
