Animate depth

Hi all

Longtime reader, first time poster. I am running Adobe AE 6.5 and ProAnimator 4.x (the latest version.)

Is there a way to animate depth, say to start at a depth of 1 and end with a depth of 10? Layer cycling comes to mind, but is there another way??

Hi evangary.

You can use the Pose Scale controls to animate the Z scale of the object.

Briefly:
- Create the first Pose at time 0 seconds.
- Create a second Pose at time 5 seconds.
- Select the second Pose and open the Advanced Animation Controls.
- Change the Local Scale *Z* value to something over 100 (try 300 or 500).
- Play back the animation. You'll see the scale animate over the Transition.

You'll then want to edit the animation to your taste.

Let us know if you have any more questions.

Hi evangary,

Create a pose with a given Z scale amount.. create a transition and a second pose, In the second pose, change the z scale.
