Randomly fading down multiple layer opacities
on Nov 3, 2017 at 4:57:24 pm

I am looking for a way to apply a random fade down of 100 layers. I am not super familiar with expressions but i am assuming that there is a way to do so. Or maybe there is a script that I can purchase?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Best,
Joeartist

I'm thinkin' a nested comp containing a layer with fractal noise & levels & mosaic ought to do it. Animate the properties and use it as a luma matte.

Thanks Dave,

Interesting that you say luma matte. I am actually working on creating a LM. Basically I have many rectangles of all different shapes that are black. I want to fade them out randomly to reveal white. Just was not sure if there was a simpler way of building a random fade down without going through and key framing each layer.

Thanks,
Joe

Well, I happen to like keyframes. They're very straightforward, very visual. You can look at them and get a sense of changes over time.
