Editing Keyframe tangents numerically
by Jim Darski 1 year ago
I have been trying to research this but so far I couldn't find an answer... In C4D I can edit path keyframe tangent numerically. It's very useful if I want to zero one side on the keyframe while keepi

Interesting. I found that zeroing it out using handles it to be pretty painful and in accurate. Especially on the keyframe that have same values. Try do do it with an object set to Auto-orient Along t

Hi, I have a problem with motion blur enabled on CC Particle World layer. Basically it only has 2 semples per frame blur - while my comp has 16. I was looking for the setting in the Effect Controls pa

Controlling the speed of a rotation
by Nicolas Plaire 4 years ago
Hi everyone! I've been trying to find a way to control the speed of the rotation of a layer. I've been foolishly thinking that a simple time*Speed speed being linked to a slider that I keyframe would

Thanks so much Dan! This works really well. Just make sure Slider Effect is applied to the rotating layer and renamed it to rpm. (took me a few minutes to figure it out).
DoF artifacts during quick camera moves in 3D
by Matt Killmon 2 years ago
Hey all, I'm doing a 3D motion graphics project in After Effects and am having some unpleasant artifacts popping up when I have depth-of-field enabled on my 3D camera along with motion blur. I'm movin

Thanks Jared. That really solved the problem for me. Looks like in Element 3D 1.5 pixel blur still gives those errors.
Stream of numbers
by Jim Darski 1 year ago
Interestingly, I could not find an answer to this even after searching for a while. But this HAS HAD to be asked before! Anyway, I need to create a stream of numbers: 0s and 1s. Let say I have 20 digi

Jim Can't say much about the Expressions but you can create the same effect using Offset Effect. Check the example: 5401_textanimationusingoffset.zip Vishesh Arora 3D and Motion Graphics Artist Films
Centering comp dimension values - any idea??
by Jim Darski 2 years ago
One really annoying thing about AE default comp dimensions is that X and Y values start in the upper right corner. That means that for example if you place anything in the middle of the 720x1080 comp
Re: Centering comp dimension values - any idea??
by Jim Darski 2 years ago
Thanks Vishesh, The null object is a simple work around. I still wish there was a way to reset comp coordinates especially when I need to work with complex comps with many nulls and layers being paren
layer transparency distance from camera
by Franky Torres 7 years ago
I need an expression that does the following: the further a layer gets from a camera, the darker it gets until it is fully transparent...here is the catch I need to layer to remain at ful opacity for
Re: layer transparency distance from camera
by Jim Darski 2 years ago
This is exactly what I need! I made a mistake and should have said closer than 100... But you got it. Basically I tried to say that I need to set up 2 ranges. Thanks so much! j.
Trapcode Particular - repeated photos in grid mode
by Jim Darski 2 years ago
I'm sure someone must have asked this question before... but my search didn't result in finding exactly what I need. Well, here is the problem. I have about 50 photos which I need to put into a grid t

by Jim Darski 2 years ago
Thanks Michael, I took some expression class some time ago. I've forgotten most of it but I do remember it was possible to write an expression that if one object intersect with another its opacity wil
