Creating AE presets using composition
on Jun 13, 2018 at 4:34:11 pm

Hi to all, I have been coming here to creative cow for quiet sometime and the community here really helped me a lot. This is my first time posting here and my first question is how do you create a preset that generates a composition similar to the Mr. Horse plugin http://take.ms/NCx7v

I'm planning to create some cool transition effects that I would give away for free but got stuck on how to develop this.

Thank you for the help

You can't do this entirely in Ae without developing a script or a plugin.

But you do have a few options:

1) You could just develop an AET (template) that people start from, or an AEP (project file) that people import into their existing projects.

2) You might look into Motion Graphics Templates if you want to interoperate with Premiere Pro:

3) You might look at the CompCode script at Aescripts, which converts comps to portable ExtendScript code:

Thanks Walter, I really appreciate this. I will check the links you provided. I have another question though and its still related on my post above. I was trying to study the Mr. Horse transition effect that they created and I notice that they created a separate comp where they placed all the effects there and use it as some sort of like an adjustment layer and I tried replicating that same style and when I placed my own effects (inside the pre-comp) above a movie clip, its not responding. Here is the screenshot of the Mr. Horse plugin

It'd be great to see the full UI for each instead of the cropped views, but I'll hazard a guess. If you have adjustment layers inside a transition comp that you want to affect the layers beneath them in a containing comp, you need to enable Collapse Transformations. Click the little sun icon switch on the transition comp layer in your main comp.
