Here's how to keep your tangent handles locked to the same angle in the graph editor.
- Select your keyframe, Right Click → Keyframe Velocity
- Check Continuous (Lock Outgoing to Incoming)
Done! Now your curves can be smooth as a baby's bottom.
Want to break the angle? Hold down alt/option + click and drag.
I set my Keyframe Velocity to a custom shortcut:
Shift + V
It saves me a ton of time and a ton of clicks.
