How to ‘Forever’ Loop Evolution Time in Ae

Leigh Williamson shows an easy way to loop evolution forever when creating things like a line boil effect.

Usually, it’s easy to add a simple expression to things like evolution and make them always animate. That might not always be the case when you are animating an evolution property to, let’s say, a turbulent displace effect in Adobe After Effects.

This quick tip from Leigh Williamson shows how you can make the evolution animate forever by adding a tiny thing to the expression. In Leigh’s example, he is creating a line boil effect, and without the expression’s modification, it could stop moving after a minute or two.
