    Hi there,

    New to this forum and it looks really good. Will be glad of any help you wise ones can give.

    I am looking for an expression as I need an oak leaf to drift from the top of the composition and gently stop in the middle so I can bring a logo up next to it.

    Any ideas? I have an expression for this which you can see here. However I can find no way of making the leaf stop gently mid screen.

    Any help would be gratefully received!!



    yVelocity = 200; //pixels per second
    oscFreq = 1.5; //oscillations per second
    oscDepth = 35; //oscillation depth (pixels)
    drift = 25; // drift (wind?) (pixels per second: - = left, + = right)

    value + [oscDepth*Math.sin(oscFreq*Math.PI*2*time) + drift *time,




    oscFreq = 1.5;
    maxTilt = 15; //degrees

    All you need to do is pre-comp the “Leaf layer” with all of its animated attributes. Then you will need to time remap it to have it stop where you want it to come to rest.
