Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Create looped animation with expressions, part of After Effects CC 2018 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Narrator] After Effects offers…a powerful expression system that can…help simplify certain tasks and automate others.…The world of expressions goes quite deep,…but even as you're starting on your journey,…it can definitely benefit you to learn a few of the basics.…They can speed up your workflow…by reducing the need for manual keyframes.…So for now let's focus on how…to create keyframed animation loops.…So here in this example I've got a box…that's animated up, down and back up again.…So over the course of those three keyframes…I'd like to loop this animation somehow,…and we can do that through the use of loopOut expressions.…
So in order to enable expressions…we have to first select the property…that we have keyframed that we'd like to loop,…and over here by the stop watch let's option click that.…By option clicking you'll notice…that these values then turn red.…We have a new expression parameter.…And here we have a text field.…Let's go ahead and delete that,…and this is where we're going to…enter in our loopOut expression.…
