Adding sfx to typewriter animation
on Jan 24, 2019 at 8:18:10 pm

I have a very long animation of a document being typed out on a typewriter. The cadence of the typing is looking natural using a simple expression on the source text to vary the pace of the reveal on each letter. Now I am wondering if I can add a sound effect of a keystroke to each letter without doing it manually as there are thousands of characters being typed.

Any suggestions?
Can Sound Keys work in this way?
Maybe an expression on a levels range to trigger an audio file when letter appears?

Bonus if I can vary the sfx between a few audio files that are the same length but slightly different pitch to seem natural.

Thank you!

Ooh, that's an interesting challenge. Can you post a stripped down project so we can see the expression?

Here is a link to an ae project with one stripped page and a couple sfx:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/t6q3uwvrgsu1ex5/AABsq_AYIRJHBPiJBWsg13pSa?dl=0



There are about 60 pre comps like this.
I could redo the typing if there is a more compatible way of doing it, but bottom line is that there are many many pages.

Thanks for taking a look!

There is an alternate way to configure the expression at the end of this thread if that would make linking up the audio easier: https://www.reddit.com/r/AfterEffects/comments/5c80uk/help_with_typewriter_...
