The Time Script

Want to make things faster? Save time? Turn back the clock? Well it’s time for the “time” script to change your life for the better. It can’t fix things like how old you’re getting before you’re ready but it can help you beat project deadlines and make quick revisions. Also it’s just great for lazy bums like me!

Leave any questions in the comments below and I’ll help you out best I can.

Here’s the project file I promised! Tut Project Files.aep

Scripts used in order of appearance:



n = time;

d = 100;

Sync Motion Typography to Audio

So you want to make some motion typography? Maybe some lyric videos? How about some fancy moving word show? Well you are in luck because it all starts right here with how to sync up animations to audio. Be it spoken word, musics, or the soft sweet sounds of two cats doing greasy adult activities to each other behind your house you’ll be syncing up things to that audio in no time.

The shortcuts mentioned are:
the “.” on the number pad – preview just audio
the “0” on the number pad – RAM preview
the “space bar” – preview without audio (and therefore not helpful)
the “command(MAC)” or “ctrl(PC)” + drag through timeline – scrub through with live audio (Very important and used often)

I hope you enjoy this presentation of a semi intoxicated motion graphics man talking at his computer.
