create the beat of 2d shape heart
on Apr 26, 2016 at 2:11:10 pm

Hi, I really need a suggestion about how to do this. I have over 30 shapes of 2D red hearts creates in Illustrator (in different sizes each one), imported in After Effects compositions, I put all this 2d red hearts around a tree (which is in the middle of the screen), now I'm trying to:

Creating a beat movement of each heart,coming closer to the camera and the returning back (like if it was beating with a lot of force (but allmost all at the same same, an a few ones starting a little bit later), and then all the hearts hide the tree that is in the middle, and finally they separate towards the sides (and a few ones goes become detached towards in front (towards the camera) leaving the escene passing across the camera, (in order to make a transition and where there was the tree appears a flower)

How to move all the shapes, animating them, one by one? is there any script here that can help me?
http://mamoworld.com/after-effects-expressions?filter=tid-20 I can't figure how to animate "in group" but each one shape in not the exact direction, any idea?

Ok, then only I wonder,
If I animate manually a shape moving it away from the center, with which ae script can i do the same with the other shapes but, but away from center to left the shapes that are in the left side, and, moving away from center to right the shapes that are in right side? the unique solution is manually moving each one of the 30 shapes?

Or can some of this scripts help me to do thta?

You need to move the anchor point. Objects scale around from the anchor point, so if you wanted something to scale up and "move" to the left, the anchor point has to be on the right. Check out this script, you can select multiple layers at once and move the anchor point to one of 9 positions. If you have move keyframes already, adjusting the anchor point with the script though could cause problems.

"if you wanted something to scale up and "move" to the left, the anchor point has to be on the right. "

If I want that a round shape "beat"(beat with the kick of the music) I must scale it up and then scale it down (with keyframes), correct? and the anchor point where I must put it if I want thta the "beat" come from the center? Thanks John
