    Hi Clive
    Your technique resembles a tutorial i’ve recorded a while ago, on a digital clock/timer.

    I believe the issue you are describing in the technique is caused by the high frame rate and the value interpolation of time remap, but it can be solved easily with these steps:
    1. Open the digits comp.
    2. Create an adjustment layer and place it above all the digits layer.
    3. Place the “Posterize time“effect on the adjustment layer.
    4. Set the effect’s Frame Rate value to the comp’s value (in your case it’s 60).

    This fix should work, but if not I have another fix in my sleeve.

    If you plan to make more numbers animations in the future I highly recommend checking our Counter and Time Presets.

    Cheers!

    Hi Ronaldo
    I believe most of the shots in the example are dispersed 3d layers with camera movement.
    For the floor layers I recommend using “Corner Pin” effect as shown in this Tutorial:

    Hi Paul
    Try changing the “Cinema 4D” Engine to “Classic 3D” by pressing the render engine button circled in the screen-cap.

    The C4D is a great engine for extrusions in AE but it does not support masks (yet…)

    Cheers!

    Hi Shawn
    Try to select one point and only then drag select the points you need.
    This way AE will understand that you are point selecting and not moving the shape.

    Hi Melbrin
    If the Photoshop file contains layers but you can’t import them to After Effects, usually it’s because the Photoshop file is in CMYK color mode.
    Change it to RGB and try to import it again.

    This can also happen when trying to import multiple Photoshop files at once with drag and drop, so just import them through the proper command.

    Hi Ranveer
    Try our VA Precomp Time script, it’s free and does the job well.

    Hi Vlajko
    You can recreate this blur by creating a masked solid, duplicating the mask and changing the bottom mask’s mode to subtract and playing with it’s expansion and feather properties as seen in the attached photo.

    Hi Reed

    What you ask is pretty simple to do, copying the path data an pasting it to the position of the Electron layer.
    But since this is with shape layers there are few things to check before copying and pasting:

    1. Vector data must be copied from a bezier path so if you didn’t create the Oval shape with the Pen tool you’d probably need to convert it, here’s how:

    Right Click on Content-> Ellipse 1-> Ellipse Path 1 and select the “Convert to Bezier Path” Command.
    Now the Ellipse Path 1 changed to Path 1, so you can open it, select the Path Property and copy to the clipboard.

    2. Now when you have the Vector data you need to paste it directly in the Position property of the Electron Layer.
    So open the transform->Position property (or simply press P on the keyboard), Select the Position property and Paste.
    now you can see that the Electron motion path is the same as the Oval Path. if it shifts a bit, you can move the Electron’s Anchor point or adjusting the path by selecting all of the keyframes and dragging to motion path the the proper location.

    3. Looping can be simply done by copying and pasting the keyframes 4 or 5 times, I personally Prefer to use the loopOut() or loopIn() Expression on the position value.

    If you find your self doing this multiple times I suggest taking a look at ArrowHead. It’s a tool I developed to create Arrows along paths But it’s great also for attaching layers to the path and animating them along it.
    You can find it in: https://www.vdodna.com/products/arrowhead/

    I hope this helps!

    Best Regards

    If I remember correctly adding wiggles on the same value create a mess.
    but you have a few things you can do instead (without creating additional nulls):

    1. Create three additional Slider Controls on the layer, wiggle them, and add the result to the existing expression instead of the last line of code:
    [xSpread[0]+SliderX, ySpread[1]+SliderY, zSpread[2]+SliderZ]

    2. If the wiggle can be 2D you can add a Transform effect to the layer and wiggle it’s Position value.

    3. Wiggle the Anchor point of the layer (I recommend this one).

    Best Regards
