Create a seamless repeat animation in After Effects. This simple After Effects CC animation needed to visualise the concept of sharing, so Iain Acton ran with the idea of a conga line of shapes moving between two tunnels.

Create a seamless repeat animation in After Effects

Here's how he did it… 01. Get started I began by creating two ellipses on shape layers with strokes. Next, I rotated the tunnels – I used a null to handle all the rotations in this animation. 02. Next I created a square on a shape layer, and animated the position property, moving it from one side of the screen to the other. 03. I wanted to keep the orientation of the shape throughout, so to do that I took the expression of the shape's rotation, turned it into a negative and then set it to rotate.

Simulating Depth Using Vanishing Points in After Effects

Vanishing Point is one of those really cool effects in After Effects that will always be impressive no matter how many times you use it. In a nutshell, Vanishing Point simulates a 3D environment by creating a simulated 3D projection. While it doesn’t work in every situation, if you have a room with good four-corner perspective, you can create some amazing results. Here’s a quick example. Video: Pro Video Coalition - After Effects Hidden Gems Weekly: Automatic Fades by Chris and Trish Meyer.

As we’ve said many times, After Effects is not an NLE - but often, it’s easier to keep everything inside After Effects instead of splitting a project across multiple programs.

One of the biggest issues for editors coming to After Effects is that video segments have to each exist on their own track, each with their own opacity fades or transition effects; there’s no overlapping video with transitions between them on the same track. This can really slow you down when you go to tweak an edit. With that in mind, years ago we created some Animation Presets for Adobe that automatically perform fades and crossfades without the need to manually place and edit keyframes.

Many still don’t know those exist, so they’re the subject of this week’s After Effects Hidden Gems. These presets exist inside Animation Presets > Presets > Behaviors.

Quando spostate uno o più perni di deformazione, la trama cambia forma seguendo il movimento ma la trama generale viene mantenuta il più possibile fissa.

Animazione con gli strumenti Marionetta

Il risultato è che un movimento in una parte dell’immagine causa un movimento naturale e realistico nelle altre parti dell’immagine. Ad esempio, se posizionate dei perni di deformazione sui piedi e sulle mani di una persona, quindi spostate una delle mani per farle fare un cenno di saluto, il movimento del braccio corrispondente alla mano è ampio mentre il movimento in corrispondenza del punto vita è ridotto, esattamente come nel mondo reale. Se selezionate un singolo perno di deformazione animato, i relativi fotogrammi chiave della posizione sono visibili nel pannello Composizione e nel pannello Livello come un tracciato animato. Potete lavorare con questi tracciati animati esattamente come lavorate con altri tracciati animati, inclusa l’impostazione dei fotogrammi chiave vaganti nel tempo. Un livello può contenere più trame.

My Top 5 After Effects Expressions - Graymachine

Being that true “velocity” includes the vector (or traveling direction in 3D space), the bounce happens in whatever direction the object is traveling. This also accounts for scalar or array values, so you’ll find that this expression works just as well on 2D rotation as it does on 3D position. It’s very cool! This expression is a bit of a community effort. The seeds were certainly planted by the great Dan Ebberts, and then a modified version was posted on Modify “amp” for the amplitude or how much bounce is present. Amp = .1; freq = 2.0; decay = 2.0; n = 0; if (numKeys > 0){ n = nearestKey(time).index; if (key(n).time > time){ n--; }} if (n == 0){ t = 0; }else{ t = time - key(n).time; } if (n > 0 && t < 1){ v = velocityAtTime(key(n).time - thisComp.frameDuration/10); value + v*amp*Math.sin(freq*t*2*Math.PI)/Math.exp(decay*t); }else{value} 2. 3. 4.
