Using Wiggle to Create Random Movement in Adobe After Effects Editors sometime cringe at the word expressions, but have no fear. When you understand them they really aren’t scary and can end up saying you a lot of time. If you’ve ever seen animations where light is flickering or a camera shakes, it’s likely you’ve seen the wiggle expression in action. Wiggle is one of the most popular After Effects expressions, as it is easy to use and visually interesting. The Wiggle Expression in After Effects For this example I created the word ‘wiggle’ from text. Option (Mac) or Alt (PC) click on the stopwatch to create the expression. Type wiggle(2,50). If you want to modify the wiggle simply change the numbers. Wiggling One Dimension What if you want to wiggle just the x or y position? I went to motion-graphics-exchange.com (an online resource for After Effects expressions), and searched for “wiggle one dimension”. Copy this text into your After Effects project and you’re done!

One-sided layers Apply this expression to the opacity attribute and it'll disappear whenever it's flipped away from the camera. You need to have an active camera in your composition for this one to work. a = toWorldVec([0,0,1]); b = thisComp.activeCamera.position - toWorld(anchorPoint); c = dot(a,b)/length(b); if (c > 0) 0 else value Object bouncing on a floor This will make your layer/object bounce along an imaginary 'floor'. Translate 3D coordinates to 2D src = comp("3D Data Comp").layer("3D Layer"); src.to_comp(src.anchor_point); Bouncy scale 'IN' Apply this expression to the 'scale' parameter of your layer. k=16; // final scale a=5; // how quickly the bounce ends b=20; // how many bounces it'll do (that is, the bounce speed) x=k*(1-Math.exp(-a*time)*Math.cos(b*time)); [x,x] Auto Layer Flip [(toCompVec([0, 0, 1]) > 0 ?

How do I add an email contact form to my website? : Visitors to your website want to contact you. You need a way to help them do that. At first it seems simple— just design an HTML form. There are easy fixes and sneaky workarounds for this problem. <a href="mailto:email@example.com">Send Me Email</a> But this approach results in massive quantities of incoming spam (junk email), as automated software harvests your email address and begins transmitting garbage you have no desire to read. Also, this approach doesn't allow you to control the format of the user's message in any way. Another well-known shortcut is the mailto: form submission: <form action="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"> <p> <i>Please select the product you are interested in.

Unfortunately, there are several major problems with the mailto: form action strategy: 1. 2. 3. Handling Email Forms With PHP "Great! Learning PHP <? 1. 2. 3.
Expressions Expressions in After Effects I've added some pages designed to teach a few topics in geometry relevant to expressions in After Effects. This section focuses more on math than on syntax, and assumes that you're familiar with the basics of creating and using expressions. These pages are still fairly rough—I'll be revising them and adding new pages over the next week or two. The geometry material starts here. These pages are focused on Expressions, a feature new to After Effects 5.0. For now, the site consists mainly of a set of pages designed to teach you the basics of using expressions in After Effects. In addition, I've compiled a set of useful reference tables showing the attributes, methods and sub-objects belonging to each of After Effects' objects. Please feel free to email me with any comments or questions, here:
