hi I have a couple quistions quistion on your timelinffx program…I donwloaded the trial version just to see how it works and ive noticed you use a lot of all ready made particles that can be altered in the program..my quistion is,,are thoughs particicles animations actually made in the program orwas they imported in their for us to use just to re edit them..and other quistion is can you make animations from scratch usng your own stuff to make them look like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLgoCEHN-64July 5, 2015 at 12:23 pm #5460
Hi, all of the effects libraries available on this site were made from scratch in TimelineFX.
You can make a similar effect to the video you posted, but you can’t use paths in TimelineFX. After effects is more for video editing whereas TimelineFX is made for Game content for use either as sprite sheets or dynamically in-game.July 5, 2015 at 3:51 pm #5461
thanks peterigz, is their a way to animate them like that in the video in the program even though the program dont use pathsJuly 5, 2015 at 10:45 pm #5462
I depends on what you’re trying to achieve really. what was it you’re looking to use the effects for?
Essentially that effect is what I’d call a “Star or smoke trial” which is easily doable, but only if you’re going to use the effect in-game dynamically using one of the libraries such as Blitzmax or Monkey.July 6, 2015 at 4:27 pm #5463
well I was trying to be able to do effects like that in the video and able to move them across the screen like you can when your using a paths tool///Im using the effects for to create introductions for movie files and most of these programs are for games which makes it even harder because when you save them as their file format which is usually for games..and was looking for a good program which also allows me to create my own from scratch if i needed to///been playing around with the demo and was able to import my own image but was only able to get a scatering effect which puts all the particles all over the screen..so havnt yet figured out how to controll them better lol..and I really do like this program for the price it is because after effects is pretty expensive because my laptop well only run cs6 or above ..so yea wasnt sure if i had full controll of the program and was able to create my own and to also move them around to animate like in a path..ive been seaching and searchingfor programs like this and im down to your guys and after effects and if this program can do what i want it to do than i wouldnt have a problem purchasing itJuly 7, 2015 at 11:56 am #5466
I think you’re more after video effects which TimelineFX isn’t designed for. I made a quick example of the star trail effect you linked to in TimelineFX, you can drag it around for a similar effect, but because you can’t use paths or save to a video format I don’t think it’d be much use to you. Here’s the star trail effect for your reference anyway: StarTrailEffectJuly 7, 2015 at 3:30 pm #5467
thanks again peterigz, the link to your star trail effect said page couldnt be found,but yea im looking for program for doing animations for movie intrductions and wanted to be able to do trail effects ///I think you can save in sequence with transparent png files which would work to import them as a movie file ..in anycase i ran across sony studio which im not sure if that what im looking for ..and than ran across corel motion 3d which i think is similar to what im looking for if i can get their particles to do what i need them to do lol and if so .than it would be easier to use than adobe after effects and has more presets in it and cost a lot lessJuly 7, 2015 at 8:11 pm #5468
Opps sorry I should have tested! I’ve fixed the link.July 8, 2015 at 4:36 pm #5469
thanks peterigz. that was a nice animation, and I really do like the program but wished you guys had one that was mainly for movies///where you can import and save as movie files with some 3d texting effects also//im testing out corel 3d motion but not sure if thats even what I want beings its mainly for doing 3d//and theirs not many ways to to save as movie and audio..and dont even think the audio has a way to be moved around in the timeline they provid..so it kinda sucks because not many people do particels just for movies and audio unless its a 3d program for creating games…and not sure if corel movie studio can do what i want either lol
