What is it
Slice it Up is a tool that cuts footage into any number of slices by duplicating it N times and applying random width masks to it. Those pieces are brought into one composition later and laid one over another to create an undistorted image. The tool provides controls to set random or linear offset to X, Y and Z position for each slice, adjust the expansion and rotation angles for the mask.
One of the most flexible things that Slice It Up provides is the ability to randomise slices in the UI panel at any time. If you don't like the width of your slices and feel like a change up, just randomise them in UI. If randomised position is not your taste, re-randomise it at any time without loosing your keyframes even after closing and opening the project.
While those buttons regenerated a new seed for width or position, button "<" will take one step back and regenerate previous seed value. This way you are free to skip through possible options and find a look that fits you best.
Slice it Up is procedural and non-destructive way to slice your footage in After Effects.
Adobe Illustrator and Cinema 4D
- Unlimited number of slices,
- Works in 2D and 3D space.
- Randomise width or height at any time,
- Randomise slice distribution at any time,
- Randomise slice axis direction,
- Random or linear slice distribution in space,
- Generate previous seed to get that perfect look,
- Shrink or expand slice mask.
Select a layer you wish to slice, enter desired value for slices, and click a button. Sit back and watch the magic happen.
After slicing is finished you will see new composition that has Slice it Up effect controls attached to it. Parameters like X/Y/Z Offset are meant to be animated. Choose between linear and randomised offset for those values. Combining them together with Rotation and Expansion will result in great and unique animation.
You have the ability to randomise slices right in the UI at any time. If you don't like the width of each slice and want to have it different, hit "Randomise Width/Height". If distribution of the slices is not your taste, re-randomise them at any time without losing your keyframes even after closing / opening the project.
