Question Intuitive Animation Tangent Issue

I have figured out how to keep tangents flat (stepped result) during the pose-to-pose section of the Robert Kuczera tutorial. Now that I am into the straight ahead stuff doing breakdowns, my tangents are not staying flat.

The benefit of his method is staying visual (not going into the graph editor). Kuczera doesn't explain, very well, what he is doing he just does it using hotkeys. Any help would be appreciated. Here is what i have figured out so far. Kuczera calls this his double-key method.

1) Create new pose
2) Set key at given frame (for ex. 150)
3) Set Key at 151
4) Set Key at 152
5) Go back to previous pose and copy last key
6) Paste key at 149
7) Voila, you should have stepped results using spline tangents

I am currently having the same problem. I did follow your explination and it worked for the 1st to 2nd pose. But followed the exact same proccess for the 2nd to 3rd pose but there is slight movement in the character and don't know how to correct this. I did nothing different, but does it matter if there is slight movement or not?
