We developed a script that creates a 360° panoramic view of the selected composition.
The tool provides a panel with several options including the ability to specify the number of cameras in the rig, to create a fade in/out effect based on camera distance, and to turn Y auto-orient on or off.
More info on the page of the project.
This After Effects script displays a palette that allows you to quickly modify the Geometry and Material options of the selected layers. If you want the panel to be dockable, place it into ScriptUI Panels folder.
- Select some 3D layers.
- Execute the script and modify parameters.
Cloth simulation test done with AE scripting and expressions.
- particles (little circles) are setup on a grid
- particles are connected with springs
- force is applied
- finally layers are created at center of each cell, with expression-driven orientation and corner pin to fit the cell
Of course you can make a Newton’s Cradle Reuben with Newton, here’s a sample scene!
Reuben on Twitter was “Gutted to find out that Newton won’t allow me to make a Newton’s Cradle!”
This After Effects script creates shape layers and distributes them around a sphere.
Execute the script, specify sphere parameters (#cols,#rows,radius), and click Ok.
