by Quentin Block 8 years ago
Hi, I want to create an animated mass of texture mapped round particles that moves along a path - trailing particles along the path as it moves - sort of like an asteroid. Been using CC Particle World

Thank you Pawel. This is very useful and I think I can adapt the settings to do what I want. I'm curious to see if your question is answered too... Best, QB
expression: audio to control CC radial fast blur
by Quentin Block 8 years ago
Hello, Any tips for an expression that will enable the CC radial fast blur effect to be controlled by audio amplitude (both sliders) I've tried modifying this to make an adjustable expression but no l

Many thanks Dan! That worked well. You made my day! 2 questions if you have time to answer... Does 'stretch' always refer to the amount within expressions (I thought it had something to do with scale.
Audio Amplitude Expression Question
by Christine P. 14 years ago
I am using an expression to link the opacity of one layer to the Audio Amplitude layer. My problem is that since the range of my audio layer is so minimal, the opacity change is not visible to the eye
Re: Audio Amplitude Expression Question
by Quentin Block 8 years ago
Took me hours to figure this out as I'm expression-illiterate, but I kept getting an error when I used the above expression. I had to change the word 'audio' in the last (just inside the parentheses)

Just a quick follow up - I changed all the files to wavs, re-installed + updated Aftereffects, and did a host of other things that were suggested on different forums. The comp still seemed to crash. W

Great, thanks. Are there settings specs that you (or anyone) recommend(s) for optimal playback on the COW I'd be using Compressor to format the clips... Cheers, QB

by david bogie 10 years ago
We see similar posts often, people using AE as a transcoder to create a delivery file. It's just not something I'd ever bother doing. Render your effects sequences and movies, assemble them in a video

by Dan Wharmby 12 years ago
I usually just highlight the transition and hit Apple R to render just that segment. I'm not sure what you mean when you say "highest quality." Depends on how you are exporting and for what end use. I

Re: AC3 audio in compressor? PLEASE advise...
by eric pautsch 13 years ago
APack should be used to transcode your audio to AC3. It was folding into Compressor some years ago. Look for APack and use that to trancode those AIFs into AC3. http: www.kenstone.net fcp_homepage a_p

Thanks for responding, Don. No, I don't have DVDSP... and I understand that it's quite expensive. My budget is very slim. Any other options I'm assuming that I can't just burn the MPEG2 on a DVD and p
