Re: Destabilize Layer

Thanks Paul. I played with the camera technique for a while but couldn't come up with that solution. I was close, but no dice. As usual, a brilliantly simple answer! Thanks for the script as well.

Re: Destabilize Layer

Hey Paul! The reason I was stabilizing & de-stabilizing was to do a mesh warp on a face, not composite layers with it. The 3D camera technique isn't really working because I am applying the Mesh Warp effect to the stabilized comp so turning the camera on within that comp allows the warp to slip agai...

Re: Destabilize Layer

Thanks Paul, but the new way sounds just fine. Hadn't run across that technique yet bit it makes sense and is more up my alley. No math... for me!
Thanks again,

Chris

Re: Destabilize Layer

Hello! I know this is old, but the link is not working. If this is still compatible with AE CC, is there a new location for it?

Re: A good keyer for DV (using Keylight)

Thanks so much for this great preset! My footage was so bad I had soft blurred edges (almost like a light wrap). I added a Levels effect after Keylight (selected only Alpha) and pulled the whites and blacks into the middle, its like a more refined Black & White clip. It really created a clean edge b...

Re: Create Masks from Edges

That would work except I'm using the two masks with the "Reshape Effect". Both masks must reside on the layer you're warping. I'm faking 3D (3D Glasses effect) with old 2D footage. Duplicating a shot & Warping certian elements to the left or right to create the other eye's view. It works, it's just ...

Re: Create Masks from Edges

Autotrace works great! Now I have one other challenge that I'm not sure is solveable. For my effect, I need to duplicate the Mask that autotrace created and shift it to the left or right a few pixels. I've highlited all Mask Shape keyframes and moved the mask but it only moves it on the current keyf...

Re: PSD to 3D

WOW! You don't know how much time you saved me tonight! I'm working on a series of spots that are like a comic book animated in 3D. Here's an old one.

Create Masks from Edges

Here's a challenge (I think)! Is it even possible to have AE create animated masks that are generated by visible edges? I'll try to clarify. I'm using the Reshape effect in AE to warp certain elements in a shot to new positions. Reshape uses two masks and animates the shape of the pixels within them...
