Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating looped animation with expressions, part of After Effects CC 2017 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- After Effects offers a powerful expressions 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.…It 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 loop out expressions.…
So, in order to enable expressions,…we have to first select the property…that we have keyframes that we'd like to loop.…And over here by the stopwatch, 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 loop out expression.…
