hi :)

is there a way to blend between two anchorpoint animations (preferably with an animated percentage)?

my problem:
i have an stabilized plate but the stabilization should blend in very smooth in the middle of the sequence.
sadly i have almost no idea about scripting in aftereffects.

oh and i'm using the new aftereffects 7.

thanks,
basti

Are you need reduce the effects of the stabilize or simple animating the anchor point?

You can reduce the action of stabilize using expressions, las these expressions below

shift= stabilized_anchor point - original_anchor_point

original_anchor_point+(shift*mult)

The mult is a variable usable to reduce the shift (ex multiply for .5, the half of shfit will be applied). To control this variates you can use sliders controls and/or nulls

hi vympel,
thanks for your quick help :)
expressions are really cool and they seem to be very simple!
it's working excellent now, the only thing i had to change was your second line:
original_anchor_point+(shift*mult)
should be:
original_anchor_point-(shift*mult)

thanks again!

cheers,
basti
