animation curves in the viewport

Hello Everyone! I hope someone can answer me this... or that I can explain myself 

 

My problem is this:

I have a walk cycle in a character and, as you know, when you select a spline or null, in the viewport you see your animation curve or tangent. So, I have like 700 frames, and when I select the spline of the arm I see all the animation path in the viewport.

Is there a way that I can limit the number of points that I see in the viewport?

You need to complete your profile so that we know what version of the software you are working in. Please also take care to post in the correct section, which is not tips and tutorials. Moved to 'keyframes etc' where it should be.

 

If you mean the keyframe dots, the answer to your question is no. There will be as many of them as there are keyframes. The dots in between show interpolation so that is controllable via the curves / tangents / type of those keyframes.

The animation curves are limited to the span of the preview, so if you need only a short snippet from that curve, limit your preview to e.g. frames 70-90, and you see only 20 frames.

 

The dots stand for keyframes and the straight line parts of the curve for frames, so if you have more keys than frames (e.g. from a 125fps motion capture) then some of the key points may not even lie on the curve.

 

But you cannot interpolate or hide points that are on the curve.
