loopOut() morphing shapes
on Feb 5, 2020 at 4:35:31 pm

I'm morphing a shape and was wondering if there is an expression to loop the change so it morphs and then goes back to first shape and then changes to the second one and keeps looping.
I tries loopOut() expression and it doesn't work.
thanks!!

This expression
loopOut("pingpong")
will make it go from your first keyframe to your last, then last to first, and then it'll repeat until the end of the comp.
If that isn't working for some reason, pre-comp all of the layers you're using for the morph, enable time remapping, and apply the expression to the time remapping property instead.

What's happening when you try? Could you maybe upload a screenshot?

Not sure if the screenshot will be visible, but there is Error:
"Function loopOut is undefined, an expression was disabled as a result of an error"

Ah, I think the issue is that you can't use it on a path, so try this workaround:




Pre-comp your animated shape layer without using an expression, then outside of the pre-comp, enable time remapping. Set keyframes where you animation begins and ends (delete any others) and apply loopOut("pingpong") to the Time Remapping property.
