AutoSway 1.86: How to Sway Multiple Layers in 2D or 3D with Ease



AutoSway 1.86: A Powerful Script for After Effects




If you are looking for a way to create realistic and dynamic animations of layers swaying in the wind or reacting to physics, you might want to check out AutoSway 1.86, a script for After Effects that lets you easily set up and control the sway of your layers.




AutoSway 1.86



AutoSway 1.86 is compatible with After Effects CC and above, and it offers two modes of operation: Puppet Pin Tool mode and Layer mode.


Puppet Pin Tool Mode




In this mode, you can apply AutoSway 1.86 to a single layer that has Puppet Pins on it. You just need to select the pins that you want to have sway, and click the apply button. Then, you can adjust the sway parameters in the SwayControl layer that is created by the script.


The SwayControl layer lets you change the amplitude, frequency, phase, decay, wind direction, wind speed, and wind turbulence of the sway. You can also animate these properties with keyframes or expressions to create more complex and varied motions.


Layer Mode




In this mode, you can link and sway multiple layers as opposed to the Puppet Pin Tool mode which can only sway one layer. You can sway layers in 2D or 3D as well as bending and twisting them. There are also tools to help divide and duplicate layers.


To use this mode, you need to select the layers that you want to have sway, and choose the layer that will be the start point and the end point of the sway. Then, click the apply button and adjust the sway parameters in the SwayControl layer.


The SwayControl layer has similar properties as in the Puppet Pin Tool mode, but it also has some additional options such as twist amount, twist direction, bend amount, bend direction, bend axis, and bend offset.


New Features in AutoSway 1.86




AutoSway 1.86 has some new features that make it even more versatile and user-friendly. Here are some of them:


  • Bake function: This function allows you to convert AutoSway's movement into keyframes and put them into one layer. This reduces the expression calculation time and makes your project more organized.



  • Unbake function: This function allows you to restore your baked layers to their pre-baked state with all the values and keyframes intact. This is useful when you want to adjust AutoSway's movement again.



  • PseudoEffects: The effect items that are applied by AutoSway are now easier to see and access in the Effect Controls panel.



  • Decay: This property lets you gradually reduce the sway over time by setting a single keyframe at the position where you want the decay to start.



Conclusion




AutoSway 1.86 is a script that can help you create realistic and dynamic animations of layers swaying in After Effects. It has two modes of operation: Puppet Pin Tool mode and Layer mode, each with its own advantages and features. It also has some new features such as Bake function, Unbake function, PseudoEffects, and Decay that make it more powerful and convenient to use.
