Animate With a Control Layer – Adobe After Effects tutorial



Animating many layers on at once is hard… but not if you use Control Layers. Link the animation of a while field of layer into one gradient layer in minutes with one excellent expression. That expression looks like:

sourceLayer = thisComp.layer(“Transition Control 2”);
sampleSize = [1,1];
samplePoint = transform.position;
colour= sourceLayer.sampleImage(samplePoint,sampleSize);
x=colour[0]*100;
[x,x]

and you can put that shit on everything!

If you have any questions just let me know in the comments.
