Apple Motion Dissolving And Replicator
on Feb 28, 2011 at 6:26:40 pm

I'm using the apple motion replicator effect to create a "TV WALL" effect (basically a grid of 100s of video clips)

How would do I apply a dissolve to dissolve each screen so they all dissolve individually one at a time, not all at once.

Thanks for the help!!

Use a sequence replicator behavior on opacity set to 0, adjust the spread, then adjust your replicator build style to determine how the animation moves through the replicated cells.

Do I tweak the opacity within the replicator I have now, or do I make a new replicator just for opacity?

Neither. You add the Opacity parameter to the Sequence Replicator behavior, and set it to 0 - this will animated the opacity of every cell to 0 (or from 0 or through, depending on the choice you make). If you haven't used the Sequence Replicator behavior yet, you may want to play with it on a simpler test project - it's incredibly powerful.

Thanks, I got this far, but for some reason it doesn't appear to be applying the effect I've added.

I was able to add a replicator behavior, and brought up opacity settings within this, but it doesn't seem to be applying an opacity behavior to my "group". Any suggestions?

Thanks.

You apply the behavior to the Replicator itself, not the group. Once you add a parameter, you need to change it's value to see any animation. I think it might benefit you to read through the built-in help on how to use the sequence replicator behavior, might save some time.

Thanks, I got it working. My problem was I had opacity settings keyfamed within the replicator, which was conflicting with new keyframes in my sequence replicator behavior.

Hey Mark, thanks for all the help with motion.

Any suggestions on how I would achieve this "Video Wall"/"TV WALL" effect in After Effects? I've tried the tiler, the griddler, CC tile, but haven't been able to figure out how to stagger the screens so they all play a different portion of the video clip while. Is there a script to use for this? Would you use a particle generator??

THANKS!

To do this in after effects try Echospace from trapcode, it adds a good replication feature to after effects.

Thanks for the tip, I don't have trapcode at work, anyone have a free out-of-the-box solution without downloading stuff to my work computer?

Does anyone have a solution that exists in the software so we don't have to download third party software?
