Is it possible to use expressions to make right angle graphics? I will explain in detail below.
Recently, I have decided to update the information labels that I use for my client projects and animations.
Here's the layout to the label:
In previous builds, I built a basic rig with three points or nulls that I use to layout the label: A) Starting Point, B) Elbow for Arm, and C) Key information of the text.
Then I used the beam effect to connect between the three nulls to form the arm for the label. Using null A and C, I can position them on stage to highlight key information on the screen. Once I am happy with the position of A and C, then I make sure that B is right-angled at 45-degrees. I used the pick whip to connect the height of null B to the height of null A and then manually adjust the weight of null B to align a 45-degree angle between null A and C.
Is there a way to use expressions to produce a right angle on Null B where it calculates the angle different the other nulls, without manually adjusting it myself?
I really appreciate your time and thank you in advance.
