Im trying to begin a shatter but have it return/reverse midway to become whole again. Im not trying to reverse the entire shatter. I want to begin it. pause it. and have it return to its original form. I already got half way by boosting the viscosity up to one, but now i just need it to return to being whole again. Is this possible?
Set a time remapping keyframe on your shatter pre-comp at the very beginning of the shatter. After the shatter completes to what you want, copy the beginning keyframe and paste it after the completion. It will reverse. If you want a pause, keyframe at the completion, copy it, and paste it a few frames after.
