You might be interested in the tip for rotating and object PERFECTLY without the jerk you sometimes have to correct manually:

Make your rotation into a sequence of frames that are an even divisor of 360. (i.e. 6,12,36...)

Let this number = n.

Put a keyframe in frame 1 and in frame n-1. Also put a keyframe in Int((n-1)/2)

Rotate your object to 360 - (360/n) in the n-1 keyframe and to (360 - (360/n)/2 in the middle keyframe.

Idea: the object rotates 360/n degrees for each frame.

When the loop goes from frame n-1 to frame 1 it completes the last 360/n degrees making a 360 revolution in (n-1)+1=n frames. Sounds complicated but it works perfectly for objects you want to rotate.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
