animation curve adjustments
on Aug 19, 2013 at 6:49:38 pm

Hi -

- I see on a co-pilot tutorial that with type there is a neat animation curve adjustment under ''range selector / advanced /'' ...

....... anyone know if this is available for other layers including 3D extruded layers which are raytraced please-?

Those "animators" exist for text layers only, as far as I know.

thanks Cassius -

- much appreciated -

-- lets just hope you have missed something though ...... this would help greatly with animation controls which I still find to be extremely difficult to use....

Text animators don't have a lot do do with curves.

The Graph Editor can have curves in it, and you can even make your text follow a mask path that's curvy. You can even animate the mask path vertices if you want. So I'm unsure precisely what you're asking...

Hi Dave

--- in the co-pilot tuorial found here : tthttp://www.videocopilot.net/tutorial/translucent_glass/ Andrew Kramer modifies the animation curve of type using settings in the 'range' menu.

This allows % adjustments on 'ease high' and 'ease low' - as seen at 19:00.

I thought this looked pretty useful and wondered if it was available elsewhere.

This is because although I understand the essentials ( I think ) of the graph editor I still find it pretty much impossible to control animation curves with any subtlety or accuracy ( as is easily possible on Flint ) .

Also if you or anyone else know of any good tutorials for using the graph editor it would be much appreciated.


Chris

No time to look at the tutorial, sadly, but it probably wouldn't have helped: I RAM Preview such text animations (solo the layer), and when it looks right, I'm done with the Graph Editor. Pretty crude, but effective.

Hi Dave
--- no problem and thanks for reply anyway -

-- will be checking this out myself soon to see if it is effective and if so cant help thinking it would be a very useful addition to all layers.

All the best

Chris
