AE Basics 65: Expression Controllers PART TWO
AE Basics - A Creative COW series for new users of Adobe After Effects. Lesson 65: In this second follow-on tutorial, Andrew Devis continues to demonstrate how to apply a color Expression Controller to one part of the production and then how to quickly apply it to other parts of the same composition. He then goes on to show how to separate out parameters to two different control points of one Expression Controller finishing by controlling parts from different areas of the shape layer as you would in a composition which has multiple layers.
Expression Controllers are a way to simplify the animation controls for a given composition. Although some people are initially worried by the idea of using Expressions, using and controlling Expression Controllers is both easy and effective - especially so when dealing with complex animations.
