In my attempts, I am able to create this. Here I have used Sound Keys??? spectrum and colormap as the base graphics. The colormap has been quantized, and used a Simple Choker for the rounded corners. However, I would like to use one of the rounded corner pills from the static image from above, and not the choked colormap.
How do I go about so I can have the pill (from the static graphic) represent a quantized sections in the animated equalizer? Thanks in advance.
Sorry, I dont fully comprehend your proposed solution. I have, however, tried using masks. You can see that bounce in the equalizer isn't as dynamic as the example I provided in my original post. So I was wondering if there is any way to do the equalizer, possibly without a mask. Hope I made myself clear.
I have tried using track matte. Here's what I came up with. The bounce in the motion isn't as dynamic as if pill were to generate as opposed to being revealed. I'm wondering if I can use the pill as a particle and have it bounce.
Maybe I'm not being clear: I'm talking about creating a grid of pills that you overlay on your existing EQ animation. That way the "lights" light up the way you want it to, and the mask with pill-shaped holes shapes it the way you want.
There's some manual work involved--you will have to build the pill-shaped mask overlay to match your existing comp-- but I think it's the simplest way to get the result you want.
