creating an after effects template with a reflection
on Oct 28, 2012 at 7:14:04 pm

Hi

I am trying to create an ipad swipe animation template in after effects, with its own reflection. I then wanted to use this template constantly in final cut pro, changing the videos each time. does anybody have any idea how i would be able to do this? Creating the swipe animation is not really the problem but i just cant get my head around how i would be able to create a generic template that could be easily recycled, bearing in mind that the reflection would probably somehow need to be connected to the videos.

My after effects knowledge isnt the best but i essentially wanted to create a single .mov animation that i could then just drag into final cut pro.

Would really appreciate if anyone has any tips, Thanks!

If you can create the swipe animation, then all you need to do is create precomps for your videos. Say Video 1/Reflection 1 would be a precomp, then when you want to change the video, you step into the precomp, change it and both the video and reflection will be replaced.
