Time offset my expression
by Jaus Dahead 2 years ago
Hi im a total noob in coding and i cant figure it out. I have an effect (the intensity of a lens flare) bound to a trapcode soundkey output value. It works fine and increases the light as i wanted. Bu
Re: Time offset my expression
by Eric Sanderson 2 years ago
"valueAtTime()" is what you're looking for delay = .2; 100+(thisComp.layer("Soundkey").effect("Sound Keys")("Output 3").valueAtTime(time-delay) 7)

Ive been doing some extendScript training, and in an effort to better understand practical applications of a for loop in AE i rigged something very simple up to test, unfortunately with no result (no

More like this maybe: val = 0; for( i=1; i <= thisComp.numLayers; i++){ if (i == index) continue; skip myself curLayer = thisComp.layer(i); if(curLayer.transform.opacity == 100){ val = curLayer.tra

Combine values dynamically maintain set value
by Eric Sanderson 3 years ago
How would i go about making the scale 0 of 4 different layers always add up to 227.65 (seems arbitrary i know, a lot to explain). when 1 is at 100, the rest are at 44.55, no matter how you scrub the v
Re: Combine values dynamically maintain set value

figuring out which is selected is where it got messy. Had a slew of if else if's. Then manually added all of the scale 0 s and manipulated with linear's. Thats when i decided all each layer really nee

Re: Grid expression.....sort of.

relief. Yes the second one is working. I'd imagine i could find in AE Help how that toComp and coordinates are working Have a feeling this wont be the last time i could use that.

AE Shatter Gradient

In what situations will using a gradient layer for shatter NOT work. Im not getting any result here and i dont see any reason why i shouldnt be: I have the shatter effect on the layer i want to shatte
Re: AE Shatter Gradient
by Eric Sanderson 6 years ago
Nevermine, im just realizing theres not time sampling for the gradient layer, which is too bad kind of eliminates a lot of the benefits of using a gradient map. Looks like animating the tolerance will
Dynamic Chain

update: the project was getting heavy and just plain nasty so i took a different approach that isnt quite as "accurate" but working beautifully and very fast, using spline dynamics and cloning the lin

Hey I'm looking for a simple, fast way of making a still-frame to "draw" itself into an After Effects composition. The particualr fram I'm working on is a sketched drawing in black and white. I don't
Re: Simply way to get still to "draw" itself...
by Eric Sanderson 8 years ago
you can use the write on effect to reveal image...or use paint to paint a black and white comp to use as a matte for the frame, somewhat time consuming either way, if your lookin for a quickie instead
