Generate Keyframes Command

Ordinarily, keyframe extrapolation occurs without creating keyframes. This lets you
experiment with various methods. However, you can convert an extrapolation method
into keyframes to further manipulate them. This is done using the Generate Keyframes
command. You can choose how many extrapolation cycles you want converted into
keyframes. Cycles after the number chosen remain in the extrapolated state.
