Here's one idea for the effect, which you can even do in Premiere: Get a live-action camera shot where the camera is slowly trucking forward. In post-production, create a title that has at least one letter with a hole in it (A, B, D, O, P, Q, etc.). Lay the title over the top of the trucking-in shot. Animate the scale and position of the title over several ...

Could be a text encoding problem. Is the original text using the Latin alphabet, or something more complex (accents, cedillas, or right to left languages)? If not, maybe try copying the text into a plaintext editor (like Notepad on a PC or TextEdit on the mac). Then copy it again, and paste back into AE? I haven't tried the premiere import yet, so these are ...

So you want the width of the whole text object no single characters? In that case you could use this: http://motionboutique.com/text-bounds-expresssion-580/ A tutorial plus sample project on how to get the bounding box of a text layer. In case the link dies, here is the complete expression they use to determine the bounding box. step = 1.0; // higher ...

I actually found the answer in the CS3 scripting guide. CompItem#selectedLayers actually returns an array of AVLayer objects. AVLayer is a subclass of Layer and has quite a few attributes. Here are a few of them: Masks Effects Anchor points Position Scale X Rotation Y Rotation Opacity Oddly enough, when calling these attributes you need to pay attention ...

I have a couple options you might consider. 1) Create a small picture in Photoshop that looks like the "hole" you want. Include a transparent (alpha channel) background, so it's really just the black or black+red color that you want, in the shape of his tooth. Then in After Effects, or even Premiere, place that image in the right place. Finally, animate ...

Unfortunately, the only answer is rotoscoping. You have to remove the tooth from each frame manually. Rotoscoping tools will help give a closer starting point, but that kind of object removal where both the object and the background behind it are changing and moving is nearly impossible to do without manual effort. Note, if everything in the mouth behind ...

Ok, after a research I found the solution. Watch this tutorial. At a glance: Create Adobe After Effects project. Add "Channel set" effect. Duplicate layer 3 times. Adjust each layer to show only one channel (Red/Green/Blue). Set Blending Mode as Screen. Add transformation for each layer. Play with rotation/scale. Voila! Check my example. Original ...

Motion graphics is a form of 2d or 3d animation based around moving graphics. It can include such things as moving titles, animated presentations and graphs, animated background (motion backs), whiteboard animations, animated product demonstrations and more. It can range in complexity from relatively simple (such as basic moving titles) to extremely ...

After Effects has a seperate executable for the render engine. Have a look at this article from Adobe for some usage examples and an overview of the commands. http://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/automated-rendering-network-rendering.html aerender -project c:\projects\project_1.aep -comp "Composition_1" -output c :\output\project_1\project_1.avi As ...

I came up with another option last night. It involves reshooting, and would cost some money. The idea is to get "dentures" for the actor that have a tooth missing. The gumline of the "dentures" would be where the actor's real teeth are. The artificial teeth would extend beyond that, and of course one would be missing. If the actor could position his lips ...

For such a short clip, just paint over each frame as needed using the brush tool. This reminds me of "The Hangover", but Ed Helms actually had his implant removed for the film. No effect needed there. If it helps, everything I've ever seen where they just painted the tooth has been obvious to me. I think the audience is pretty forgiving here. Should be ...

Select the motion keyframes & copy. Now create a new mask on the layer on which you have the stroke effect, any old mask shape will do. Set its mode to none. Now select the mask's Mask Path property and paste. The mask can now be used to provide the path for the stroke effect (it's the first property in the stroke effect). You have to directly select the ...

Not sure how to do this with the stroke effect. But you can use a particle generator set the movement and physics to 0 and link the particle source to the trackpoint. This will generate a stroke of particles, and if you ramp up the amount of particles you can make a solid line.

The Zapcode Creator compresses the video further in order to reduce download size of the video and so that it will run in an AR camera view on lower end devices. This means that it will be lower resolution than what you have uploaded. If you like you can email us at support@zappar.com and we can take a look at your Zapcode and video to see if there's any ...
