After Effects :: How To Layer And Animate PNG Or JPEG File

Mar 7, 2014

I have a logo in a png file that I would like to bring into AE and animate. I did not create the logo so I have no idea how to bring in layers from Illustrator or Photo Shop. I am not familiar with either program but I have watched a former colleague separate the layers (aplha channels, etc..) it's all Greek to me. The logo has a couple words on it plus an exclamation point that I would like to animate if possible...

Photoshop :: Load Image Either JPEG / PSD File And Make Layer Copy - Unable To Apply Preset Action

Jul 16, 2012

When I load an image either a jpeg or psd file then make a layer copy I am unable to apply a preset action to this. Either a default action or one of my own on a Mac OSX running Lion. This did not present a problem in CS5 and I am wondering if I've missed something basic?

When converting a vector or Illustrator file (such as a logo) into a shape layer any gradient fill is lost. Is there no way to ensure the gradient fill is converted across or is this a matter for a future release of After Effects?

Lightroom :: Print To JPEG In 5.2 Produces Corrupt JPEG File That Cannot Be Opened

Nov 5, 2013

Print to JPEG in LR5.2 produces a corrupt JPEG file that cannot be opened.
Lightroom is running on MacPro. When printing I am attaching an ICC profile provided by the bureau that is going to produce the prtins. Having said this the file cannot be opened neither on a Mac nor on a Windows PC.
Up until now, i used to exported as TIFFs but after reading Jeff Schewe book The Digital Print i have become convinced that printing through LR to a file is much more efficient.

Photoshop :: How To Keep Layer Effects On One Layer From Affecting Another Layer

Jun 7, 2012

I have found that when I use the Layer Styles on one layer and then make a new layer or select a shape that creates a new layer that when I go to add Styles to the new layer/new shape the previous layer is affected by how I set the Bevel & Emboss, Direction, Altitude, Drop Shadow etc etc.
For instance, let's say I have a ...
BG > New Layer > draw an ellipse and then add a Bevel with an  > Angle of 89 and an Altitude of 30 and then I add a New Layer > open the Styles and go to change the Angle to say +89 or whatever and the Altitude to say 45 ... the first Layer/Shape Effects change.
How I can keep one Layer from being affected by an other Layers Effects'?
I have found that if I Rasterize a Layer Effect that I can add a "double" effect on the same layer but I haven't tried the to do this with separate layers. However, for most of the work I am doing I cannot use the Raster because everything needs to be true vectors.
I have a Dell Laptop/Windows 7 Home Premium that's a 64 bit

After Effects :: How To Animate Tank Treads In 2D Picture

Feb 3, 2014

I have a .psd picture of a tank and try to animate it in AE by rotating its wheels and tread (or track?). The only solution i have come up with is to slightly change tread layer's x and y positions in every frame, making it to vibrate. However it does not create rotation illusion which i'm after - the tread vibrates, but doeas not revolves around the wheels. If there are other solutions to make tread layer rotate around tank's wheels, i would be glad to hear about them. All 7 tank's wheels are separate layers and the tread layer is above them. The rest of the tank's layer is above tread layer

After Effects :: How To Animate The Color Of Multiple Layers At Once

Sep 7, 2013

I've created a grid of around 80 individual text layers (each layer is a single letter) and first, I want to animate their opacity as a group, then INDIVIDUALLY animate their opacity (again) and color.  How do I do this?
Also, while I'm asking, I have two simpler questions:
- is there a way to animate the color of multiple layers at once so I don't have to click on each individual layer and do it manually?
- how do I achieve a "swipe" opacity effect?  If this is not clear I can explain but I won't bother for now.

Maya Animation :: After Effects - How To Animate Growth Of Polygon

Jan 21, 2013

I have worked on After Effects and recently started doing my Motion Graphics work in MAYA. I made some models using the Polygonal Mesh primitive objects for logos etc etc.

I was wondering if I can animate the growth of an object as though it is being formed formed in 3D space. I tried doing this by taking it in AE but it becomes a Flat image and I loose the z dimension, thus I can only move the mask in X & Y axis.

If there are any tools to animate or any Keywords that I can explore to make this job feasible. I do not want to pull down the transparency and animate it as then it makes the entire object disappear or visible at the same time.

After Effects :: How To Multiply An Image And Animate It In 3d Space To Create A Shape

Sep 9, 2013

He wants me to take an image (Its just a square image) and have it start in the center of the screen, and as it scales down and moves to one of the bottom corners (I've already got that part done) the image multiplies and creates a seamless circular/oval band in 3D space. He also wants this done with another image, but for this other image (also simply a square) to create a sphere as it multiplies.
Is there an easier way to do this, or am I going to have to place, manipulate and animate each individual copy of the square image to create a solid band?

AutoCad :: Copy / Paste Objects From One Layer In First File To Different Layer In Second File

Aug 7, 2013

I am using ACAD 2005 and am trying to copy&paste several objects from a layer I created in one .dxf file to one of the 2 standard layers (0 or Defpoints) in a new blank .dxf file.

My problem though is that if I copy and paste all of the objects (or even one of them) and them move to the new file and paste, it pastes the objects, but also "imports" into the new file the original file's layer that these objects were on.

For clarity, the new file only has the 2 standard layers and then after copy/pasting an object, the file manager shows the 3rd layer from the original file.
