Key frames take longer to draw, especially if there's a lot of tweening or
a large area of the screen is being redrawn ... ie if you have a frame rate
of 10 fps, and it takes 3/10ths of a second to draw the changes in a
particular key frame, and then there are 9 blank frames, those 10 frames
will last a total 1.2 seconds.

So ...

(the number seconds too long the animation is) * (frames/second) = number
of blank frames to remove
