I'm back with another question :P.

39 seconds in. The blue boxes. What plugin is used for this and/or how would I create this? Is this just simple duplication and then meticulous animation? (runs away scared)

Surely there's a plugin for this? I have most Red Giant products...did I miss some functionality?

try expressions,

L = thisComp.layer(index+1);
delay = 0.5;
timeToStart = 0;
myDelay = (index - L.index)*delay;
t = time - (timeToStart + myDelay);
if (t > 0){
delta = L.transform.position.valueAtTime(t) - L.transform.position.valueAtTime(timeToStart);
value + delta

this code will look at the posission of the layer below itself.
(if you need the layer above, change the INDEX+1 to INDEX-1)

delay = 0.5;
will hold 0.5 seconds bevore it follows, change the value as needed!

timeToStart = 0;
will delay the start... change as needed!

I think i have this code from Dan Ebberts's
but i am not shure, pardon me if i am misstaken


- Make a square (or whatever)
- Make a Animation, as seen in the clip you Linked
- Duplicate ONCE & aply the code
- Duplicate the one square that now has the code N times.
- Distribute as needed
- hit render / preview...

hope this helps!!
