Re: Use sampleImage() to create a color picker

Sorry, that goes beyond my knowledge, maybe Dan or Paul or Lloyd can help with this. My assumption is that you would have to get some kind of boolean (true/false) out of the sampleImage function and then use that to read the position value. But I unfortunately don't have time to play around with tha...

Project log

Would be great to have a tool that allowed to type in some notes into a window in AE that documented the changes in a version of a project like "Changed myComp_43, added two layers of leaves and adjustment layer with desaturate" Ideally you would be able to search these notes without having to open ...

2d layer takes camera position

I have a 3d camera that has some expressions applied to it to make it behave in a handheld fashion. I have one 2d layer amidst my 3d layers that needs to stay 2d for multiple reasons. Is there a way I can have it react to the camera's motion somehow? It is very slight, but visible somehow.... Thanks...

Re: Illegal use of reserved word

Re: Illegal use of reserved word

Ha, so why is it that you can't use the name of the property to target itself? This doesn't seem to be the case with position or scale?

Thanks Paul

Illegal use of reserved word

Trying this

Code: Select all

if(time<4);
	{opacity=0};
else
	{opacity=100};
opacity
I get an error message for line 3 saying "illegal use of reserved word"
Line 3 is the "else"
What am I doing wrong? Is it a syntax error here?

Thanks

Re: How to calculate with expressions ???

Are you talking about doing this in a procedural way so that the light is always at a 45% distance from the end point? You'd probably have to calculate the length of the beam for that, which you could probably do by doing some comp math with the beginning and end point of the laser. The non procedur...

I can't tell you how awesome this is for projects that bring in a ton of layers from FCP via Automatic Duck. Just amazing

Re: Applying an expression just at exact layer time

The easiest way to do this would be to use the Expression Controls (check the effects menu).
Depending on the type of data you expression is creating, or reading, you can easily controls its effects via keyframes.
