Connect Layers - Rope, triangulation, spanning tree for After Effects

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.

Six Great Free Flash Extensions — Michael James Williams I’m not a big fan of Flash’s built-in code editor, but I do love using it for drawing, design and animation. There’s always room for improvement, however, which is where the Adobe Extension Manager comes in handy.

VIDEO: After Effects - Leftover Plugins (part 1) by ChrisZwar Have you ever checked to see how many plugins you've got? You might be surprised to know it's almost certainly well over 400, and it only takes a few purchases to clock up the 500 mark. While some plugins get used every day, others sit in the dark, dusty corners of your hard drive in some forgotten submenu and never get any love at all. If you have a look through all the effects menus you'll probably discover many plugins that you've never used at all. In fact if you're like the typical After Effects user then you've never used any of the audio effects at all, and plugins like 'arithmetic' and 'calculations' may as well be in a foreign language. In amongst the 400+ plugins that come with a native installation of After Effects are a few rough gems.
