Using expression to distribute layers along a path
on Sep 1, 2005 at 8:48:03 pm

Hey guys,
I'm looking for an expression that will enable me to distribute layers (in this case small circles) along a path/mask. I know how to use value_at_time and Position to have layers follow each other along a path but in this case I don't want the distributed layers to eventually "catch up" with the controller layer. I want them to always be offset along the path so that I can use value_at_time with Scale to have them successively scale up then down again. Hope that makes sense.

best,

JD

Some of the project files on this site might be of some help: http://www.mizutama.com/aetips_ex_library.html

I tried looking at them a while back to see how they work, and it was totally over my head though :p But I think it does exactly what you are wanting.

Thanks for that. It looks interesting but not really very functional for what I need...
