Rotating Y axis so that it aligns to a shape's side
by Anne Green 3 weeks ago
Hi all! How are you I'm trying to create an unfolding motion, similar to the one seen in this video. However, I'm dealing with triangles with not-so-convenient sides. I'm trying to get the lighter-sha
Re: Rotating Y axis so that it aligns to a shape's side
by Emre Anil 3 weeks ago
One quick workaround: Align a 3D Null layer using it's "Orientation" rotation so that it's Y axis is parallel to the side of the triangle. Set the shape layer's parent to the Null layer. Then rotate t

Opacity based on NULL position NOT working due to parenting
by Billy Woodward 3 weeks ago
Hey there - ran into a rather unsavory issue while trying to put together a simple MacOS Dock style animation. I have text layers that are parented to a null - that null has an expression affecting it
Re: Opacity based on NULL position NOT working due to parenting
by Emre Anil 3 weeks ago
Try deleting "-parent.position" at the end of the 3rd row from your expression. You don't need to subtract the parent's position for the distance because the child's position is always relative to the

Hey, guys. Do you know if there is an AfterEffects filter that allows you to directly convert RGB colors from an image to other ABC colors defined by the user As a picture is worth a thousand words: I

I have two text layers, each on a separate comp. I tried linking their positions using an expression so when I move one the other gets updated automatically. I have no animation in neither layer, no k

Does the target layer have a parent If that's the case try changing your expression to this: toWorld(comp("innocent").layer("innocent").transform.position)

Create a text layer and add the following expression to it's Source Text (.toFixed(2) sets the decimals to 2 digits): thisComp.layer("Shape Layer 1").transform.scale 0 .toFixed(2)
I'm Stuck-Missing Files?

It seems like some of the footage you purchased are missing in After Effects project. Template makers generally pre-render the effects like particles and flares to compensate the missing effects. Chec
Position A = 0%, Position B = 100%
by Ryan Hauser 2 years ago
Hello! I'm wondering if there's any way, with expressions, to set something's position based on a percent. Here's an example pseudo code for what I'm looking for : Position 0% = 0,0; Position 100% = 1

I did something similar to this before: https: forums.creativecow.net thread 227 34811 The idea there is the same but it can also go beyond the weight limit. Keep in mind that I used 0-1 as weight not

I divided the position difference by 3 for the even spacing. changing it according to your ratio should work.

Here's an example: Pick-whip your solid layer's opacity to the text layer's Source Text property to change *thisComp.layer("source").text.sourceText* values = thisComp.layer("source").text.s
Video Appears Stretched on IMPORT to AE
by Michael Dominic 2 years ago
I have a video that is Apple ProRes 422, 720 480 (640 480 Actual). It appears correctly in QT but when brought into AE it wants to behave as 720 480 not 640 480, so it is stretched horizontally. When

Sounds like a Pixel Aspect Ratio problem. And make sure you toggle the pixel aspect ratio on viewport:
Mask Feather Tool after keyframing

Re: Mask Feather Tool after keyframing
by Emre Anil 2 years ago
If you're using the mask feather tool and not the feather property of the mask then I don't think there is an easy way to add the feather to all the keyframes..

by Emre Anil 2 years ago
You can add multiple text animators for position and move each letter separately. You need to change range unit to index and modify the start end values to the letter you want to change (1 and 2 for t

Search for "motion track tutorials". After you get your camera movement in After Effects just align your 3D shape layer with the section.

If you just need the center point of 2 Null Objects: n1 = thisComp.layer("Null 1").transform.position; n2 = thisComp.layer("Null 2").transform.position; pX = (n1 0 + n2 0 ) 2; pY = (n1 1 + n2 1 ) 2; p

If you're trying to assign the distance in Z-axis only, add " 2 " to your camera position too. You might need to control the Min Max values for the thickness tough. p1 = thisLayer.parent.position 2 ;
