I am looking to simulate a radar display in after effects for a promo. The radar display has a plot (the location of the return), histories (last 3-5 locations of the plot) and a label. The position of the plot changes at every refresh which is about 5 seconds. I will do it at .3 seconds for effect.
Here's the problem. The plot and the label needs to "jump" every .3 seconds, not every frame. However I can't use posterize time because the label has additional animation (user interaction) that is in real time. I am looking for something like posterize motion.
I have tried creating a null and creating the motion in that, then create a subcomp with the tag (possition tied to the null) and using posterize motion into that but I still can't animate the tag meanwhile.
Thanks for answering. This will not help as each keyframe will have to be done by hand. I need to create two keyframes, at the start and at the end of the path, and every 1/3 (or so) seconds the position will refresh to the actual position, the freeze.
Thanks for answering. This will not work either. This is the same as using Posterize Time. The other elements in the tag need to have 25 frames per second. Only the Position animation needs to be posterized.
I still needed the motion inside the moving element to be smooth, but the movement itself to be posterized. Fortunately due to Dan Ebberts I found the fix here in this forum. I need to use this expression on the Position of the element:
Piece of cake. Now I have another problem I'm trying to fix. Now post for that.
