Dylan Winter demonstrates ho you can expand After Effects towards the premise of Effectors in Cinema 4D. For those that use both After Effects and Cinema 4D, you will know that there are certain concepts in Cinema that would be fantastic to have in After EFfects, and notably for this tutorial, Dylan shows how you can control many layers and objects in After Effects using that concept.
If you ever wished that you could take advantage of some of Cinema 4D’s powerful effector tools while working in After Effects, your wish may now be granted. Using some clever scripting and a basic control system, we’re going to rig up our very own effectors within After Effects
Dylan creates Cinema 4D-like Effectors in After Effects by some scripting, creating a basic control system, and connecting some things together with expressions, and by cleverly making use of the After Effects Zorro Layer tagger Script. Dylan hopes to take this C4D Effector in After Effects concept further with a more robust and customizable version of a script in the future, which would be great!
