Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Color Sampling and Conversion, Extra Credit
Congratulations on making it this far. The remaining examples build on concepts covered earlier, but I have saved them for this section because they are particularly tricky or involve some complex math. I’m presenting them mainly to entice you to take some time to figure out how they work.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Layer Space Transforms
In the world of expressions, layer space transforms are indispensible, but they present some of the most difficult concepts to grasp. There are three coordinate systems in After Effects, and layer space transforms provide you with the tools you need to translate locations from one coordinate system to another.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Time Remapping Expressions
There are many ways to create interesting effects with time remapping expressions. You’ve already seen one (the last expression in the previous section). Here are a few more illustrative examples.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Using Markers
The expression language gives you access to the attributes of layer (and composition) markers. This can be extremely useful for synchronizing or easily establishing timing relationships between animated events.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Looping Keyframes
A small glitch in the cycle version of loopOut() drops the first keyframe from each of the loops. If you want the frame with the first keyframe to be included, add a duplicate of the first keyframe one frame beyond the last keyframe.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Using a Layer’s Index
A layer’s index attribute can be used as a simple but powerful tool that allows you to create expressions that behave differently depending on where the layer is situated in the layer stack.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Linking an Effect Parameter to a Property
You want to link an effect to an audio track. Specifically, you want to link the Field of View (FOV) parameter of the Optics Compensation effect to the amplitude of an audio layer.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Adding motion blur, Exporting to Adobe Flash Professional CS5
If After Effects can’t export an element of a composition as unrendered data, it either ignores the element or renders it into a PNG or FLV item, depending on whether you choose to ignore unsupported features.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating a nontext layer along a motion path
To cap off this project, you’ll use a mask from a text layer to animate a nontext layer. Specifically, you’ll use the mask shape for the directed by path to create a motion path for a car graphic so that it appears to be pulling the text. First, you’ll import the car graphic and add it to your composition.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Cleaning up the path animation
Currently, the words directed by fade in and out as they wind along the Pipes path preset. You’ll modify the text properties so that the words are opaque for the entire animation and come to a rest just above your name.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating text opacity, Using a text animator group
Text animator groups let you animate individual letters within a block of text in a layer. You’ll use a text animator group to animate only the characters in your middle name without affecting the tracking and opacity animation of the other names in the layer.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating type tracking
You’ll animate the appearance of the director’s name in the composition using a text animation tracking preset. By animating tracking, you can make words appear to expand outward as they appear onscreen from a central point.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating text using a path animation preset
You’ve seen how versatile and convenient text animation presets can be. You’ll use another type of text animation preset to animate the words directed by along a motion path. After Effects includes several animation presets that animate text along a prebuilt path.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating imported Photoshop text
If all text animations involved just two short words, such as Road Trip, life would be easy. But in the real world, you may often have to work with longer blocks of text, and they can be tedious to enter manually. Fortunately, After Effects lets you import text from Photoshop or Illustrator.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating using parenting
The next task is to make it appear as if the virtual camera is zooming away from the composition. The text scale animation you just applied gets you halfway there, but you need to animate the scale of the compass as well.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Animating Text - Animating with scale keyframes
The text layer was scaled to more than 200% when you applied the Fit To Comp command to it earlier in this lesson. Now, you’ll animate the layer’s scale so that the type gradually shrinks down to its original size.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Expressions - Creating Expressions
The Tools panel contains several basic vector shapes, which include the Line tool, the Rectangle tool, the Ellipse tool, and the Polygon tool. To create one of these shapes, select the appropriate tool, and then click and drag on the canvas.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : The Timeline - Keyframes and the Graph Editor
You can use an Excel spreadsheet to reformat underlying keyframe data from other applications; just paste in After Effects data to see how it’s formatted, and then massage the other data to match that format. Once done, copy and paste the data back into After Effects.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : The Timeline - Organization
It can be annoying that the work area controls both preview and render frame ranges because the two are often used independent of one another. Dropping your work composition into a separate “Render Final” composition with the final work area set and locked avoids conflicts between working and final frame ranges and settings.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Adding transparency & Rendering the composition
After Effects provides a variety of formats and compression types for rendering output; the format you choose depends on the medium from which you’ll play your final output or on the requirements of your hardware, such as a video-editing system.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Applying an animation preset
Precomposing is a way to nest layers within a composition. Precomposing moves the layers to a new composition. This new composition takes the place of the selected layers.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Applying effects to a layer
Now you will return to the main composition, Destinations, and apply an effect to the destinations_logo layer. This will apply the effect to all of the layers nested in the destinations_logo composition.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Working with imported Illustrator layers
You can apply or remove an effect at any time. Once you’ve applied effects to a layer, you can temporarily turn off one or all of the effects in the layer to concentrate on another aspect of your composition.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Creating a Basic Animation Using Effects and Presets - Creating a new composition
You created the composition based on footage items that were selected in the Project panel. You can also create an empty composition, and then add your footage items to it.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Importing footage using Adobe Bridge
You can use Adobe Bridge to organize, browse, and locate the assets you need to create content for print, web, television, DVD, film, and mobile devices.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Color Matching (part 3)
An element generated in 3D software ideally contains multiple passes for more control. Even with that, if the lighting direction and perspective of an element are wrong, there’s no practical way to make it match.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Color Matching (part 2) - The Fundamental Technique - Dramatic Lighting & No Clear Reference
If you’re working with a daring cinematographer shooting in available light, or heed the advice in the Foreword, you’ll be happy to know that this matching technique is even more impressive with strong lighting.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Color Matching (part 1) - The Fundamental Technique - Ordinary Lighting
The human eye is most sensitive to green, so we begin by matching overall RGB contrast while viewing the green channel, then adjusting the other two channels to accommodate that adjustment.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Color Look Development
A SharePoint Services site is a server application that uses Web site templates to create, organize, and share information. To access a SharePoint Services site, you might need access privileges.
Adobe After Effects CS5 : Curves: Gamma and Contrast
A typical method for working in Curves is to begin with a single-point adjustment to adjust gamma or contrast, then to modulate it with one or two added points.
