preset effect for having an image slide on screen in multiple panels

I know this sounds like a simple effect.

an image slides onscreen in 2 or 3 panels.

the way I have been doing it is manually by copying my image layer making a masking and adding the positioning key frames to have each half of the image come on screen at different times,

the question I have is if there is a script, expression or preset for this because I have several long videos

Not sure what you mean by "an image slides onscreen in 2 or 3 panels."

Not scripts/preset per-se. But perhaps a workflow like this ?

ok, I'll try to be more clear

I have a photoshop image
I want to find an effects that slices it into 3 panels and then each of the 3 slices move onto the screen one at a time.

it would be great to have controls that I can choose how many slices and the directions of the positioning movement

any help would be great

I'm still not sure what you mean by "panel" because any windows in AE is called panel.
Timeline panel, render queue panel, effects panel, etc

But in case you mean Split into different layout in the same comp, maybe you can use this :

It's a "Name Your Own Price", you can actually put zero dollar, so it's free.
But if this is helping you, i strongly suggest you buy at the suggested price.

right panel wouldn't be the exact word.

plane or rectangle would be the right word.

in any case thanks, I think split image may help me

I'd make a photoshop document with three layers, one for each of the images. Import it as a comp. They'd already be in their final positions, so all you have to do is make position keyframes for each layer -- the final position, then move earlier in the timeline and drag each layer off screen. Then move the keyframes on the timeline to get the animation timing right.

Pretty darn simple.

thanks dave,

maybe I can be a bit more clear.

I am working on a series of 3 minute videos that use a similar effect throughout them.

Like I mentioned the image moves on screen in multiple parts.

Sometimes the footage is a still jpeg, sometimes it is video footage and sometimes it is animated graphics.

I was hoping to find a preset that slices the video up (which I found in ae scripts) and also has the preset positioning control, (which I saved in my presets)

kind of looking to have it all in one click if possible.
especially if I hand the job off.

thanks again for the help

Well, you can make your own preset, sort of. They used to call it an effects favorite. I don't know what they call it now. But it ought to be in AE Help under effects & presets..... but I don't think you'll be able to make it as no-brainer as you want to.

Besides, this kind of movement is dead simple. If you need to have a preset to do it, whoever's making the changes needs to go back to After Effects School.
