How to make sound waves coming from a speaker?
on Dec 23, 2012 at 12:09:57 pm

Something like this: [img]http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/oculo/oculo0809/oculo080900005/3507974-sp...

See the waves coming out from a speaker? In the footage I already have a speaker so worry not, I just need assistance for making the waves. I know u need to use Radio Waves effect but idk how to adjust it. :/ Thanks!

Well, sans image, you can still understand what I'm asking for. It's like this. You know the waves coming from a loudspeaker? Yeah how to make the waves?? I already have a footage of a loudspeaker.

I would suggest Radio Waves, a plugin that comes with AE. Just set the emission point to the center of your speaker, set the color, rate, and fadeout to what looks good to you, and you're done. It's quite a powerful plugin, so take a look at Adobe's help file on it:

There's also a link to a video tutorial in there.

There are many ways of doing what you're looking for. Radio Waves is just one of them. It would help a lot to see what you're after- then we can be more specific.
Other ways:
Annimate a sequence of 3d disks in 3d space that grow with the beat and animate grey values from light to dark as they grow and move in space towards the camera. Comp them on black and precomp. Use the precomp as a displacement map to displace the image.

Use Sound Keys to generate keyframes and animate the z space position of several circles positioned on 3d layers.
