Animating many images on a grid
on Sep 18, 2013 at 10:53:47 pm

Hi...I think this is an easy one but I can't remember how to do this:

I need to show a group of maybe 60 images on a grid, then move all of them to morph into a grid of only 4 images (i.e. all images move to those 4 positions (and zoom up in size), and only 4 images remain, the others fade out.

Does that make sense? Any tips would be greatly appreciated - thank you!

What's the aspect ratio of the images? Square? 16x9? 4x3? Something else?

And what are the dimensions of your comp?

Hi David, the comp will be 1080p HD, and the images are 16x9....the number of pictures I start out with can be determined by me (it just needs to be a large looking group of images), so I can make the total number to start with divisable by 4 if that helps.

Thanks in advance for your input!!

If you can have the images flip over and form the final 4, then Card Dance is what you can use.

PS - quick question on Card Dance - I would create a large still montage w all my images on one layer, and then flip them on a grid with Card dance - how would I be able to get to reveal the 4 remaining ones, though? Hope this is not an obvious one, just trying to get my head around how to best build it. Thanks.

For a simple transition you can use Card Wipe, create a precomp with your initial images and one with the final 4. Apply Card Wipe to the first and assign as back layer the second.
Card Dance is similar.

Great, thank you - I have a little wiggle-room as to how I make this look, so I'll try that. Thanks, I really appreciate your input and expertise.
