where did you get the starfield static preset?
drkim
02/17/2009
Great tut! I found as you decrease the particle gravity (deeper into the minus range) you get more of an underwater bubble effect.

Can't wait to mix this type of look with caustics!

Thanks Andrew.

in spanish set the preset like this


Radius = effect("Radius")("Deslizador");
Speed = effect("Speed")("Deslizador");
RotationOffset = effect("Rotation Offset")("Ãngulo");

//

center = [this_comp.width/2,this_comp.height/2,0];
radius = 200;
angle = time * Speed RotationOffset;
x = Radius * Math.cos(degreesToRadians(angle));
z = Radius * Math.sin(degreesToRadians(angle));
add(center, [x,0,z]);

((Atencion con las mayusculas y las tildes))

Hi Guys!

To Everybody who has the Error after trying to active the Orbit Preset for the Null Object.

Thats because your Version thats currently running is not the english version. It has to be the english version because else the expressions are different and the preset cannot be activated.

Thank you very much for this site, I’m just getting started at AF and I found it very useful. I'm following the getting started tutorial and it's great. And above all here and there you make ironic still hilarious jokes that get the thing going. Again thank you so much for the free tutorials and presets (I know you love each and everyone of us for our outside jajaja).
