Animation timing control through curves?

Hi!
I've animated an object (position and rotation channels).

Now I need to better modify animation timing (the range animation is always the same, but I'd like to slow down some parts and make faster others).

So I've baked the animation for all the frames and save it. Finally I've loaded the animation into a clip on the Motion Mixer window. Adding a "Time Warp" line I can do more or less what I need, but using it is quite "hard" to manage, I can't be as precise as I'd like.
Isn't possible to do that using a cuve? A simple cuve long like my animation thanks to which I can slow and fast all the animation? It would be really easier.

I hope I was clear enough. Thanks a lot!

You can use an ease-curve for what you want to do. You can assign them in the Track-View/Curve-Editor on selected tracks via the "Curves"-menu.

Great Martin!

The ease curve is the key, not directly.. looking on the guide for "ease curve" I found out a tool I didn't know "retime tool" which apply an "ease curve" to each track and I can control all of them using this tool, and it does exactly what I need.

Thanks a lot!
