Keyframe Path
on Dec 6, 2011 at 6:48:21 pm

Hey everyone
This might be a dumb question and it might of already been asked I just couldn't find the answer.
So I have a null object and a camera layer parent to it and I have map out the path that I want the camera to move in. I want to add images in the place were the camera goes threw. But I need to always select the null object to show the motion path. Is there any way to have this turned on all the time. It would make it easier to see were I need to place the images if i can see the path the camera moves in.

Muchos Thank You's

You could copy and paste the motion path onto the images.
Move through the animation until the picture arrives at the point you want it to stop and delete the keyframes for it.

To make your path temporarily permanently visible! ;-)

1) Apply the Write On effect to a new (black) solid layer, place it in the BG.

2) Select the Null Objects Position keyframes.

3) Copy them and then paste them into the Write On Brush Position value

You should now see a white line following the path.

4) Select the Solid layer and go to Layer > Guide Layer. This will prevent it from rendering.

Hope this helps.

cheers,

Angie

Angie, does this work in 3d now?

Ah, no, silly me! Thanks for pointing that out Michael :-)

3D Stroke from Trapcode works in 3D but not write on, apologies, it was an early morning post!

cheers,
