Mask / shape tracking with individual points
on Jan 24, 2012 at 3:58:02 pm

Hello all!

This is my setup with three shapes:

square - line - square

The squares are scaling individualy to audio with keyframes.

What i want is : The line on its leftside to follow the left square + rightside of the line follow the right square.

So animate the line on two different points.
Any Tips? Im lost.

Greetings Krista

Not sure how you made your line, but try using the "Generate > Beam" effect. It easily allows you to control the end points of a line. You could use some simple expression to attach them to your boxes.
