Uuuuu, this is huge (changing parameters while preview is still going)

Finally! This has been the most awaited feature for me ever since I first started up After Effects.

I’m really, really happy with this. It seems they’ve brought therir entire video suite a big update. They also have a new Adobe Character Animator now.

Take this free 30 day crash course of AE. Very recently done and up-to-date tutorials. Basically shows you a bunch of techniques and possibilities within AE. Start on page 4 (day 1) and work your way up.

I wish this came out when I was first starting in AE :nerdy:

Awesome features! However the white play and pause symbols inside the green button are not entirely centered. They seem to be off by one or a few pixels.

Yep, every morning before I do anything else! If you have trouble meditating try the app ‘Calm’.

Thank you for your elaborate post Garret. You seem to have written down the core of my concerns but in better words!

I agree with you that this is a great time to serve those without the technical skills, but it definitely changes the face of this marketplace. I hope the more experienced field user won’t turn it’s back on VH because of it.

I’m in the latter category of creating projects that offer a high amount customization and are very modular. However I have been trying to dwindle down in complexity and make more ‘instant-ready’ items, but somehow I just can’t seem to make them work.

I do share your opinion that these more complex items will endure in the end. I guess it just takes some getting used to seeing the new trend with all these simpler project being so popular. Right now I’m working on a very modular kit once more and I just don’t know whether it is worth uploading right now. Maybe it is the wrong time and maybe I should join the simpler item trend.

Already contacted support. My thread about this issue got deleted, not sure if it is allowed to discuss these matters here.

You have to manually connect each keyframe to the marker and define what is happening linearly in time. But it has it’s limitations. Here’s an expression based of a Dan Ebberts one that works if you have 4 keyframes.

This only works if keyframes 1 and 2 animate an object in and keyframes 3 and 4 animate the object out. Keyframes 2 and 3 have to be of the same value. You’ll also have to have one marker for the in animation and one for the out animation. Now you can drag each markers individually to change the in and outpoint of the animation on your layer.

L = thisLayer;
if ((L.marker.numKeys > 1 ) && (numKeys > 3)){
  sIn = key(2).time - key(1).time;
  sOut = key(4).time - key(3).time;
  eIn = L.marker.key(1).time;
  eOut = L.marker.key(2).time;
  if (time < L.marker.key(2).time)
    linear(time,eIn-sIn,eIn,key(1).value,key(2).value)
  else
    linear(time,eOut,eOut+sOut,key(3).value,key(4).value);
}else 
  value;

\\

If you want to even have more keyframes and markers controlled I think it is better to experiment with “nearestKey()”.

Kidding? Artificial intelligence? Sometimes I meet someone like you, who read/watch science fiction and don’t take in consideration the reality. Do you imagine how hard it is to create AI, how much does it take? You’re a child, or probably havent tried to really create something new.

A sort of AI is already trying to replace ThemeForest authors, ever heard of The Grid? It doesn’t seem too far fetched to see this happening for video creation in the next decades.


Like worrying about whether there will be a Y2K-style meltdown when we get to the year 10,000 and we need an extra digit that nobody thought about… but that’s not to say that it’s not going to be an issue at some point in the future.

The next Y2K problem is closer then you think. Ever heard about the Year 2038 problem?
