Video shake with music
on Jul 7, 2013 at 2:21:49 pm

Hello.
I'm trying to make my music video "shake" with the bass section of the song. I cannot figure out how to do so, or I'm doing something wrong. I have trapcode Sound Keys, so I can generate keyframes from a specific part of the track, but I cannot get that to work with the wiggler. I want it to turn out something like this:





Any help would be appreciated.

Why are you using wiggler? If you want to wiggle, figure out the beats per minute, covert that into frames and wiggle that much. IE, 120 BPM would be a wiggle frequency of 2.

If you want to use soundkeys, alt-click your scale and pick-whip it to the keys generated. Or write an expression like this for scale:

mySoundkeys = thisComp.layer("White Solid 1").effect("Sound Keys")("Output 1");
[100,100]+[mySoundkeys,mySoundkeys]

I was told before that the wiggler would work here, then I was referred to the "Quaker" plugin, but that does not seem to install correctly (possibly out of date?).

Not familiar with "quaker", looks a bit like VideoCoPilot's "Twitch" plugin. Course you can create anything in Twitch manually, but the plugin does do it quicker and is pretty cheap.
