Quick Overview

The ExpressionTimeline allows you to apply several expressions to a property, so that each expression is ony active for a certain period of time. Instead of an abrupt change between expressions, you can smoothly transition from one expression to the next. What's more, you can specify time intervals in which no expression is active, so that the keyframed motion is considered.

Expression Timeline

Videos

The ExpressionTimeline allows you to apply several expressions to a property, so that each expression is ony active for a certain period of time. Instead of an abrupt change between expressions, you can smoothly transition from one expression to the next. What's more, you can specify time intervals in which no expression is active, so that the keyframed motion is considered.

Some facts

  • define the start and end times of expressions
  • fade expressions in and out smoothly
  • create smooth transitions from one expression to another
  • works with arbitrary expressions
  • allows you to combine many arbitrary expressions

New in Version 2

Version 2 of ExpressionTimeline has an improved interface where the width of the timeline automatically adjusts to the width of the panel, so there's no need to adjust the size manually.

Example 1

Interface of the ExpressionTimeline After Effects script
From the beginning until frame 50 use the keyframed values and after frame 50 use a wiggle expression.

Example 2

Interface of the ExpressionTimeline After Effects script
Smoothly transition from one expression to another. So, if the first expression is active from frame 0 to 50 and the second from frame 50 until the end, the smooth transition between the two expressions will be 10 frames long and thus last from frame 45 to frame 54. With the expressions in this example, the layer first follows another layer (expression 1) until frame 45. Then until frame 54 it smoothly transitions back to its own position while simultaneously beginning to wiggle (expression 2).

Demo

Tutorial: Expression Timeline

The ExpressionTimeline allows to combine and modify expressions without touching the code. In this tutorial we look at three examples for a creative text reveal that is based on expressions. And don't be scared - you don't need to write any expressions code to follow the tutorial.

Contents

  1. Example 1: Random grid movement (1:59-12:59)
  2. Example 2: Ease and Wizz expressions (13:00-17:50)
  3. Example 3: Confetti expressions (17:51-26:26)

Tutorial: Timeline for Plexus

In this After Effects tutorial we will combine the ExpressionTimeline with the plugin Plexus to create an impressive title animation. In addition I show you a useful expression to loop the keyframes of a property.

  1. Creating and animating text in Plexus (1:11-13:01)
  2. Animating a Plexus point cloud using ExpressionTimeline(13:02-38:04)
