Convert CS3 plug-in to CS5

Hey Guys Didn't know where else to ask this very silly question but I have run into a bit of a quandry. I used Pete's Plug-ins for a project about 2 years ago. All was fine until we upgraded our machines and After Effects to CS5. The plug-ins no longer work AT ALL in the new After Effects CS5 (I thi...

Time-remapping and pre-comps with animation

I have a problem that has been continuously growing and the only solution at present is to buy 3D software from all the major labels (Max, Maya, C4d) which is just not feesable ATM with budgetary constraints. Anyway - We do digital signage with phones, lots and lots of phones. Usually we are given a...

Here's the answer: Duplicate your main object - this will be the reflection. Apply the following expression in the position. You will also have to invert the scale on y (x=100% y=-100%). // name of the variable for the main object you want to reflect V=thisComp.layer("Object"); //get the positional ...

I posted a similar post in the scripts section but after working with one of my programmer guru friends I just have to share this with you.

You might be able to get that to work by tweaking one of Dan Ebberts expressions. I found this one: L = thisComp.layer("ghost.ai"); P1 = L.position - position; P2 = toWorldVec([0,0,1]); dot(P1,P2); url http://www.motionscript.com/expressions-lab-ae65/depth-of-field.html I think you could modify it s...

3d follow - reflections and shadows

Help! I have to follow a new style format that was originally created for print but now they want video to "emulate" the same look and feel. Basically all objects are on a 3D plane and have reflections and shadows. My problem is that when I create animation for said object I have to create a reflect...
