3d line between to nulls - REVISITED
by Tom Durham 8 years ago
Howdy Folks, I've been looking for the ultimate way to draw a simple line between 2 nulls moving around in 3d space. Dan E. and Roland K. created some great expressions to help out with this using the

connecting layers with a real 3d line preserving dof

hi everybody. I am trying to connect 2 layers (A,B) with a line in real 3d space, because the trick with the beam effect and the toComp expression doesn t work with depth of field. I have drawn a shap

to adjust the z value manually just add "+ value" to the orientation expression, but how to calculate the perfect value I think about this for many hours. Any ideas end = thisComp.layer("B"); end = en

OK, no help needed anymore, i got it. there was a parent which scaled to zero in the end of the comp. So if this is the case write something like "parent.scale" instead or just scale not to zero but 0
expressions calculation sucks

hi thanks for your reply. I have put that line to the layer positions in several precomps of my precomp. I don t see any benefit from it. It has to render again although nothing important changed. But
saving presets, preserving standart values?

Re: saving presets, preserving standart values?
by Leopoldo Perizzolo 2 years ago
You have to use expressions to adjust as needed; I would recommend setting it as follows: 1. Set both values of the 2D position point to 0px; 2. Paste the code: assuming you want to paste this on a 2D

You might try going into project settings dynamics expert and increase the steps per frame setting. That tells Cinema to evaluate collisions more frequently. Sometimes objects move very quickly from f

Re: export absolute scale and rotation after parenting

This should give you the world scale of a parented layer: s = scale 0 ; L = thisLayer; while (L.hasParent){ s = s*L.parent.scale 0 100; L = L.parent; } s And this should give you the rotation (unless

hi kevin thanks for your reply iris wipe can generate a triangle, but as you say, there are no controls for the corners, so you can use a shape layer triangle just as well. I also tried your trick wit
