  • foglight background preset to play one minute

    Posted by Bill Hash on March 27, 2007 at 1:50 am

    I want the background (FOGLIGHT) to swirl for 1 minute (length of project) but the background stops motion after 5 or 10 seconds. If I loop it
    file>interpret footage> loop the background jumps (there is a discontinuity to the movement) and it the fog looks artificial.
    So how do I get continous movement from fogliGht background without looping?

    Thanks and waselwusel sorry on my part for any confusion

    There are keyframes for the fractal evolution. Just move them. However, if you make the effect ten times as long, it will evolve very slowly. So you need to boost the value of the end keyframe.

    I’m not at my AE machine today so can’t look up the exact effect being used in the preset. It might be any of several fractal inputs. Use the U key to disclose only the keyframes that are changing.
