Connect Layers - Rope, triangulation, spanning tree for After Effects
This script connects the selected layers with segments or triangles created with shape layers. It was originally created to visualize Newton2 joints but as you will see, it can do much more. Rope Creates a single shape layer with a path connecting the selected layers (2D only). Use AutoBezier or Tension options to get rounded joint style. Spanning Tree Computes minimum spanning tree and draws each edge with a shape layer (2D and 3D support). Triangulation Triangulates the selected layers and draws each edge with a shape layer (2D and 3D support). Note that for functions that create shape keyframes (Triangulation with Filled Triangles turned on, and Rope), keyframing is done within the comp work area. Quick start guide Compatibility: For AE CS6 or later Current version: 1.08 – Initial release – May 2013 Note: And yes, everything in the promo video has been done in After Effects CS6.
