Stopping a loopOut() expression at a certain frame
on Mar 22, 2019 at 11:36:29 am

Hello Creative Cow community,

I'm working at the moment on a train animation in After Effects.

So I looped the rails and stuff with the "loopOut()" expression.
(I looped them because I don't wanted a 5000000 pixel long comp lol)

What I want to do is that the loop stops, at e.g., 2000 frames smoothly (easy-ease).

I tried to use the freeze-frame effect, but it won't work and keeps looping.

Taking a screenshot of the comp and put it on the place where the loop should stop works, but it's too abrupt.

I also tried the solution from there -> https://forums.creativecow.net/docs/forums/post.php?forumid=227&postid=2081...
But it won't work for me.

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks in advance,

Marcel

Well that quite an elegant solution, which in your case I guess will look smth like that:
t = timeToFrames(2000);
fadeTime = 1;
ease(time,t,t+fadeTime,loopOut(),value)

I would suggest to try to figure out why it doesn't work in your case, but anyway you can always go rigth-click on looped-out property -> Keyframe Assistant -> Convert Expression to Keyframes and do all the things manually.
