I created this tutorial after spotting quite a few posts from people new to AE who didn’t know about the options. Then I started trying to come up with an utlimate, time-saving, plug-and-play expression that would take care of loop compositions for you. And I succeeded! (I know, it suprised me as well!) Here’s the video which takes you through everything and underneath you find the expressions: Project file: http://bit.ly/36orXbW Expressions used: Basic method for Time Remapping: loopOut(); Ultimate method – Time Remapping: tEnd = timeRemap.key(2); loopOutDuration(type = “cycle”, duration = tEnd*1.8) For auto-fading opacity: t = timeRemap; tEnd = t.key(2); OriginalLengthofPreComp = tEnd.value; CurrentLoopTimeAsPercentofOriginalPreComp = t*100/OriginalLengthofPreComp; if (CurrentLoopTimeAsPercentofOriginalPreComp > 10) { CurrentLoopTimeAsPercentofOriginalPreComp*10; } else if (CurrentLoopTimeAsPercentofOriginalPreComp > 90) { linear(CurrentLoopTimeAsPercentofOriginalPreComp,90,100,100,0) } else { 100 }
