AE7: Fractional frames
on Dec 17, 2010 at 7:16:49 pm

I'm working on an effect that relies on offsetting a duplicate of a layer in time. Unfortunately, ONE frame is too much offset.

Is there a way to offset a layer by a fraction of a frame?


Thanks.

you could try increasing the frame rate for the comp (say, double it), adding keyframes on the frames that wold be the in-between-frames, then set the frame rate back and see if that gets what you need.

i've not tried this, so i'm not sure if it would work, but i think it may.

What about just doubling the frame rate, offset it by one frame and then embedding that comp in a comp that's the intended frame rate?

Thanks fellas.

Frankly, I was afraid that was the answer: when I've done similar things in the past I found it VERY easy to get confused as to what was going on. But, ::heaves sigh:: we do what we must.

Thanks again.
