Freelancer's Best Friend

As a freelancer you are always sitting down at a new & different machines that are obviously not setup to your prefs.. I have my prefs, shortcuts, Render Settings and Output modules in a special directory on my webserver. The script would move the local prefs from the machine into a temp folder and ...

This is also my preferred method opposed to stretching in the O.M. because if you plan on adding any effects to the overall comp, you can do it in the script. It is fairly easy to modify my script to have it add any number of effects (like the broadcast spec for example). If this is beyond your scr...

Based on input from Trish Meyer, I modified the script to Collapse Transformations in the D1 comp, so that the layers are not antialiased again when scaled.

the same link is still valid:

I might be missing something - but surely it would be easier to just stretch the item in the Output Module and save as a template? Not if you plan on field rendering, AE field renders before it does the stretching in the output module, so it would stretch the fields and create a bit of a mess.. But...

Compify 720x486 -- update for AE7 to allow adding Presets

A lot of people like to work at 720x540 square pixels, but need to final output D1 aspect ratio 720x486. This usually involves a tediuos process of creating a 720x486 D1 Comp, adding the 720x540 Comp to it and resizing it to fit. This script automates that process with the option of adding the new D...

Compify with Video Love

I am doing a job right now where i had to take a huge number of shots and basically do the age-old "video love" effect where you duplicate the layer, blur it a bit and add a transfer mode. Well I decided it would be the perfect job for me to figure out scripting, so I started with Byron Nash's excel...

Hi Paul, Is it possible to modify this script so that it can offset the selected layers by a defined amount? so for example I can take 5 layers that all start at frame zero and offset them 5 frames so that layer 1 starts at frame 0, layer 2 starts at frame 5, layer 3 starts at frame 10, etc. I know ...

basic guide layer functionality in 6.0

This very basic expression will read a checkbox & slider in a master comp and set opacity accordingly. I am doing a freelance job at a facility that has not upgraded to 6.5 yet and i wanted basic guide layer functionality in 6.0. I setup a Master Comp named "MASTER", added a Solid named "OPACITY MAS...

forgot to clarify that in this example wiggle will vary the incoming property value by 50, so if this is opacity for example and it is set to 50, then wiggle will output values from 0 to 100. I am just pointing this out because it can be a bit confusing since the output is then defined by the expres...

Jumpy Hold WIGGLE

Have you ever wanted to wiggle something, but have it jump around instead of linearly animate?

Code: Select all

v=wiggle(5,50);
if(v < 50)v=0;
if(v > 50)v=100;
v

modify the numbers are necessary.. enjoy
