We take another closer look at the SourceRectAtTime expression. Usually used to make boxes the same size as text layers, many of you asked for more control over what kind of text alignment could be used. Well this is the long answer I couldn’t just type at you in the comments. This tutorial uses MATH and EXPRESSIONS. You have been warned.

Create Mood Boards for Motion Design

Great motion design doesn’t spring fully formed from a designer’s mind. There are many steps to the pre-production process. An early and critical step the mood board. To define your visual style we typically assemble a collage of images, video, colours and fonts that will evoke the style of a piece.

Create Nulls from Path (string of lights)

We create a string of lights and learn how to use the Create Nulls from Path script. Create Nulls from paths is a powerful script that comes with After Effects and can give you access to the locations of points in 2d space, and any point and tangent on that path. It was a long requested feature and this has been a long overdue tutorial. Finally in 2019. I’m catching up… while probably still have my Christmas lights up.
