by Sergei Sokolov 10 years ago
Hi Carlos! As you know, each camera position keyframe has 3 values: X, Y and Z. Say, you insert an intermediate keyframe to only affect camera movement in Z axis. But when you add a keyframe to a sequ
3D Stroke (Trapcode) matching layers

The animation is a line stroke that is rolling out ("end" property from 0% to 100%). There are several such layers in 3D at a 90 degree angle to each other, so there are transitions from one layer to
