How to have better control of a gazebo animation

Hello, I'm trying to animate some objects on gazebo. I have followed the animated box tutorial and using the same technique I animated my objects without much trouble. The problem is that setting just some keyframes doesn't give much control over the animation because the velocity of the movement is not constant and generally the models are not moving precisely how I'd want them to. Is there a way to have a more precise control of the animation?

You can write a plugin that manually moves objects around the world, either by applying forces or by setting their locations directly.

Thanks for your answer! When I'm animating the object I set the location and the rotation manually already. Is there a different way to do this with more control? There isn't much documentation and I'm having a hard time understanding my options when it comes to animation..
