This is my first go at asking a video production related question...
I have a programming / data science background.
I have about 30,000 spatial co-ordinates (i.e x , y coordinates) These have come into existence over about 15 years. I want to animate this.
So, I need a programmatic approach - there are just too many points.
Also, when each point appears...I want it to initially appear at say 100% opacity and then over about 15 frames fade to about 30% opacity.
What tool is the best to do this in...?
I am not sure if After Effects has sufficient programatic control..?
What about Flash..? (i.e Adobe CC Animate).
Eventually, I want this animated series of points to be a layer and I will stick it on top of a base map. And do some other stuff. So eventually, the layers will be composited in After Effects.
What tool should I use to create this animation...?
