They all came from the same CV-ArtSmart object. The splines were totally visible until today they just magically decided to disappear when I moved them out of the Null containing the visible ones. Eve

Drawing a Spline Between 2 Objects in Xpresso

I have a 2-point spline that I've connected each point to a different object using a Point node, effectively creating a line between the 2 objects no matter where they go. However I need to be able to

I appreciate that but I'm already using a Sweep Nurb. The reason I need to draw the spline is so the sweep follows the Spline Scale even as it grows, when I animate that property the end isn't scaled

It's all in the title. Im making a scale and want to tie the "bowls" on either side to the rotating arm without having them rotate. I thought toWorld would be an easy way to do it but it doesn't work

Completely ridiculous, I can't get anything done like this. It seems like every program in CC14 is suffering from some kind of issue that Adobe just outright refuses to fix. Very frustrating
Move object along an angle?

Ideally I could control the angle with an angle control and the speed with a slider. My project is due tomorrow so I have zero time to figure this out on my own :(
Re: Move object along an angle?

Right. I saw your post on motionscript about random movement on a grid, but the project im doing is isometric-ish with everything moving on 60 degree angles, so not sure how that would work. So I'll j

Re: Creating a 9x12" Poster in AE
by Dave LaRonde 5 years ago
Get rid of the 72 figure. You're working with PRINT and not video. 300 dpi would be a reasonable resolution for print. SO: 9*300=2700, 12*300=3600. Make your comp 2700x3600 and you should be okay. Dav
