After Effects Plexus: Points with different sizes
on Jul 19, 2019 at 11:02:49 pm

Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to change sizes to each point differently. Can you help me, please? As I can see, Plexus plugin only letting to change the same size to all points at once.

The Points Renderer has no variation setting for the point size. However, you could create a shape layer (circle, for example), precompose it, animate its size over the duration of its comp, and select it under the "Textured Sprite" window. Turn off the sprite comp's visibility in the main comp, set the Sprite Controls > Time Sampling to "Random Still," and you will have randomly sized circles instead of the standard points. The "Points Size" setting will still have an effect, so adjust it to your preferences. Be aware that this technique does cause a major slow-down in ram previewing and rendering.
