Kindly help me out;
I need you to point to how i can assemble an expression that can do this:
Imagine a composition with many small 3D squares making up a grid facing the camera. I would want them to be offset radially from the z=0 through -(negative direction only ) such that those in the middle are offset /closer to the camera from their z=0 position and those on the sides a little closer to ther z= 0.
Below is an illustration as seen from the top AE view
Layers-> - -
It would be super awesome if the expression also arranged the layers in a gridlike arrangement on the xy axis.
Any help is more than appreciated. I do know basic to medium level expressions but want to go deeper into the abyss so bring the big guns if needed.
