Learn how to apply expressions to 2D and 3D properties, such that you don’t have to separate dimensions anymore.

If you want to move After Effects layers with a mocha track, it is a VERY bad idea to apply the tracking data to a null object or directly to the position, scale and rotation of your layers: The result is very inaccurate, because the skew and perspective deformation of the track is ignored if you are doing that. A much more accurate way to move layers is using a corner pin effect, but with a normal corner pin, your layers are stretched into the corner pin surface which is often not what you want. The “keep current frame” option of MochaImport+ offers a 100% accurate solution that is as easy to use as a null layer. Learn how to do “keep current frame” corner pins in less than 4 minutes!

Stabilized precomps are one of the most powerful features of MochaImport+In V6 you can send masks or 2d properties (the position of layers or effect control points) from the main comp to a stabilized precomp, or vice versa. In less than three minutes this tutorial shows you how to do this and why it is so useful for your compositing work in After Effects.

In this tutorial, you learn how you can move masks in After Effects with a track created with the mocha plugin that is bundled with After Effects CC 2019 (or also with any Mocha version). Since we use the “move point(s) or path(s)” function of MochaImport+ for that, the masks are not just moving with the track, but can also still be keyframed on top of the track to fix any inaccuracies.

In this class we use everything we learned in the previous classes for a hands-on example: We develop an expression to rotate the wheels of a car automatically. It works such that you only need to keyframe the position of the car and the expression calculates how the wheels need to rotate to fit to that movement. We start with the quick and easy solution using iExpressions and then develop our own version by writing our own expressions code.

Limber is the latest tool for Inverse Kinematics and Character Animation in After Effects using Shape Layers.

This class gives you a systematic overview of the basics of the expressions language in After Effects. You learn how to do basic math and how to use variables to access almost everything in your project. This allows you, for example, to place layers relative to other layer or let them adjust to the size of the composition automatically. We also show how to scale and offset a motion path with expressions.

In the new After Effects CC 2018.1 you can now import json and jsx files to use directly in expressions.

Work more efficiently and build your own expressions library file that you can reuse in any project!
