(I can't comment because I don't have 50 reputation yet lol) By the way, if I got what you mean you just have to move with the Selection Tool the keyframe on the Composition screen. For making the path smoother and more accurate the sub-Pen Tool called Convert Vertex Tool. Finally, on the timeline thanks to Graph Editor, add dynamicity to the animation in-...

All of the information is correct, to be clear: Green cached on RAM Blue cached on disk Pressing 0 on the num pad you will notice that on the blue line frames will render faster then on the none line. Of course it will skip the green line because this process is called "Preview RAM" and as I have just said Green means written on the RAM. No any other ...

You can't put the expression on a null object, but you can use a text layer. Following @bobtiki's eval() tip I tried using the source text of a text layer and running eval() on it. Initially I had no success, I was getting an "object of type TextProperty found where a Number, Array or Property is needed" error. But if I put something like a number on its ...

Here the simplest solution: After render video you just compress the video. I recommended handbrake. https://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

I do not know of any existing solutions for this in Premiere or AE. However, if you know a little about programming, you might be able to write a script using OpenCV that runs Tesseract OCR on video frames, and comes out with the text you want. Once you have the text and time codes, you definitely could write a script to build the titles at the appropriate ...

Yes, checkLayers() is what is performs the collision test, and compares every layer in the Comp against the one running the script. To check against only one layer, you could re-write that function a little cleaner, but here's a quick solution. First, remove the lines that start and end the for loop, since you'll only be checking one layer. But don't ...

There are a number of physics engines and related scripts available in the Physics Simulation category at AEScripts. However, without a more specific question about what kind of animation you're looking for (that is to say, I don't know how the electrons in an atom are supposed to move), it's hard to point you to a specific answer.

Yes, since expressions are basically JavaScript, you can load and evaluate external source files. Unfortunately the location needs to be hard-coded, since (AFAIK) expressions do not have access to the path of your AE project, so it's rather brittle. For instance: try { myPath = "~/Desktop/source.js"; $.evalFile(myPath); } catch(err) { "MISSING"; ...

I think is really rare find something for free, especially something massive like proper 3D environments able to export (as you said, Realflow), instead I can suggest you Newton plug-in.

I'd have to back up what has already been said. For best results, you will need to export as a Quicktime Animation using RGB+Alpha. Yes, the file size will be huge. However, there are things you can do to reduce the overall file size, and these things have to do with how your project is set up and your workflow. Make your Composition size the size of ...

I hope the person receiving your 'green screen' lower third doesn't ever find you in a dark alley. If it was me I'd be looking to bring the hurt. Really, this is not the way to do it. Firstly there are more space efficient codecs with alpha channels than the default Apple Animation, try proRes 4444 or the newer Cineform If you really can't afford the ...

For best results, you should use an alpha channel for lower thirds. However, certain situations may require your proposed workaround. With your composition active in the timeline, hit CMD/CTRL + K to bring up your Composition Settings. Double check your Background Color and ensure it is chroma key green: #00FF00 Now add the composition to your Render ...

The best way to achieve this is to import the PSD into After Effects, which converts the PS effects to AE effects automatically. Make sure your effects are all on adjustment layers before importing, and make sure your document mode is set to RGB. If your PS document is a different resolution than your AE comp, you may need to move the effects from the auto ...

This is called "Inertial Bounce" and has a handy expression to do all the work! https://gist.github.com/animoplex/aafd6a157282351c8dfeea385d969ef2 amp = 5.0; freq = 2.0; decay = 4.0; n = 0; if (numKeys > 0) { n = nearestKey(time).index; if (key(n).time > time) { n--; } } if (n == 0) { t = 0; } else { t = time - key(n).time; } if (n > 0 &&...

Here's a few effects to take a look at, which may get you closer to the result you are looking for. These effects are based on your helpful thumbnails: Effect > Stylize > Glow / Trapcode Shine (uSampler1) Effect > Noise & Grain > Fractal Noise + Turbulent Displace (uSampler2) Effect > Generate > 4-Color Gradient (uSampler3) Effect > Noise & Grain ...

yes, After Effects comes bundled with Cinema 4D lite. https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/c4d.html
