by Mike Foran 4 months ago
I'll shortly be on a project that will require a lot of page turns in 3D space, and the 'Page Turn' effect isn't going to hack it as it's a 2D effect. I've seen quite a few scripts that will split up

I should add: I would also be interested in an alternative script that would create a new light emitter layer for each shape path in the source, each with it's own motion path pulled from that shape.
