Basicaly I want to expand stars from a point but it looks wierd because it expands as a rectangle and not a circle.

you can easily create a starburst by using a star shape layer.

Hey,

I'm new at this and didn't even know shape layers existed... Still catching on some beginner tutorials but I think we have different things in mind but the answer is in shape layers I jsut don't know how to use them. Basicaly I want to have the "cc starburst" effect bound by a circle.

And what is the easiest way to create a circle as a shape (not an elipse)? I havent seen any tutorial mention it and I'm guessing it's such a small thing not worth mentioning.

I see now. this effect feeds of the pixels and masking is just giving it less pixels and not cropping it. you can create your mask on a solid in a layer on top of the layer with the CC starburst effects and set the latter to user the above layer as an alpha matte. think of it as a clipping mask

Thanks for letting me know of all this options. The art in aftereffects is the way you use things. Sadly this wouldn't work anyway. I shipped the project. It was only a couple of frames but still. At the second beat the stars launch out but with the proposed method making them circular wouldn't be possible.





at like 3 sec

Thanks for all the responses!

This is awesome. Thanks for all the help I am guessing this method can be applied to all simulation and other efects that can not be masked so this will be really useful in the future. Thank you very much.
