How to reference and effect's name?

Hello! I am looking for a way to average out face tracking data, and am creating a series of point controls that will hold the averaged data for me. This is a task I will have to do across maybe 20 shots, so I am looking for a fast way to do it. Ideally what I would like is to have a null which I ca...

Shortcut for Un-PreCompose

Hi, I recently downloaded the Un-PreCompose plugin from AEScripts.com and I was wondering if it is possible to assign a shortcut to the item that appears in the menu? I have tried using KeyEd Up but I cannot target this new menu item to assign a shortcut. Is it even possible? I have managed to add a...

Re: Trigger expressions by luminance of another layer?

I'll give it a shot. As far as I can remember you need to convert the rgba values from sampleImage to hsl (hue, saturation, luminance(or is it lightness?). And then you can read that value.

Keyframing speed...

What email clients does this work with?

I cant get it to work with any of mine. my gmail, hotmail and website email. I have always wanted to use the render and email script in AE but am on the verge of giving up as it just doesn't seem to work whatsoever. All I get is TLS errors...

Thanks
