Animating a Clock in AE
on Aug 1, 2011 at 4:13:25 pm


I'm trying to make some lower thirds for a video with a clock where the hands spin on it while the lower third is up. How do I get the hands to spin quickly while the lower third is up? I tried setting keyframes with rotation, but if I stretch it out for 5-6 seconds, it's slow.

Thanks :)

You could just set the number of full rotation to a really high number but it might be better to create a loop and then adjust it accordingly.
You could use this, or the tried and true loopOut expression after you precomp it.

Hope that helps
