…We have these automatic animation which is being…controlled via the Weigall expression, and null position layer.…The result is that each one of these little spheres is…working its way and moving across our composition in a 3-D world.…Now, this is very nice but I want to create some kind of an interesting…cascades scaling animation so each one of them will appear in a different…timing during the, let's say, ten seconds of the beginning of this time.…
So in order to do so, I'm just going to select one…of the spheres, and then press S to see the scale key phrase.…I'm going to create the keyframe at the beginning of the…composition with the value of zero for all the three axis.…Then I'm going to press Shift and Page Down in order to move ten frames ahead.…And then return it to 100%.…I'm also going to make sure that this is still selected and then under the…Animation menu from the Keyframe Assistant, convert…the last keyframe to an easy, ease keyframe.…
You can also press F9 of course in order to do so.…Now in order to make it a little bit more springy, I'm going to select the Graph…
These lessons are perfect for motion graphics artists who want to create earthy physics simulations and add realistic motion to their projects.
