Yes, all of these could definitely be coded into an AE expression...there are actually a ton of types of interpolation methods out there...spline based interpolation, polynomial based, lerp, cosine, etc. Maybe sometime in the next two weeks I'll get some time to code a few of these, I can see a few ...

Try this expression

initialVeloc = 93; simSpeed = 7; gravity = 9.8; launchAngle = 70; launchPoint = [ 72 , 452 ]; //--------- t = time * simSpeed; a = [ 0 , gravity ]; initialVx = initialVeloc * Math.cos( degreesToRadians( launchAngle) ); initialVy = initialVeloc * Math.sin( degreesToRadians(- launchAngle) ); v = [ t ...

I have a project in which I did just this...I finished it a few days ago. I used 2 expressions. One expression places the layers in a grid, and the other one uses sampleImage to sample pixels from a movie layer and use this to drive the color parameter of the "fill" effect. The project uses some exp...

Try this instead:

Code: Select all

maxAmp = 30;
minAmp = 1;
spanAmp = maxAmp - minAmp;
incAmp = Math.sqrt(spanAmp);

if(varAmp < spanAmp/2){
  (varAmp / incAmp) - incAmp;
} else {
  (varAmp / incAmp) + incAmp;
}

AE 7 Additions

Since I don't have AE 7 yet and can't seem to find the new scripting guide online, anyone care to tell me what iconButtons are? Also, what is this system.callSystem() you mentioned in your previous post? Thanks for the info.

Foorage replace

Anyone know how to replace a simple way to replace a layer in a comp with a footageItem.(like what happens when you alt drag a piece of footage onto a layer)? I looked through the scripting guide and can't seem to find a simple way to do this.
