Jorrit Schulte's Custom Effects

Postby JorritSchulte on 11/22/2009, 6:43 am

Hi there, this is where i will be posting some of my Custom Effects, look at http://aenhancers.com/viewforum.php?f=4 for more CE's and for getting them earlier, that's where i post them first.

These Presets are using A Custom Effect
How To instal:
For windows:
place The 'Jorrit Schulte' Folder in your preset folder.
Then, go into the After effects Folder, inside of 'Support Files' and open PresetEffects.xml
Scroll down to the end, and right Above </Effects>
paste the code that's inside of PresetEffect.xml (i like to hit Enter a couple of times before </Effects> first)

For Mac:
place The 'Jorrit Schulte' Folder in your preset folder.
To enter the 'CustomEffect.xml' content in Preseteffects.xml go to your Adobe After Effects folder and right click on "Adobe After Effects CS4.app" and click "Show Package Contents".
Then go to Contents > Resources > PresetEffects.xml and then right click on PresetEffects.xml and open in an Editor, then also open the file "CustomEffect.xml" that came with the Zip and copy everything in the "CustomEffect.xml" file and then go to the opened PresetEffects.xml and go to the very bottom and hit enter a few times right above the bottom "</Effects>" line and then paste all the contents from "CustomEffect.xml" and then save. (Make sure that </Effects> is still at the very bottom)

Here's A Video Tutorial how to install to make it a bit easier:

Distance Calculator

Postby JorritSchulte on 11/22/2009, 6:54 am

This Preset Calculates the distance between two points, or layers (2D And 3D).
it could be handy for things like 3d tracked footage, if you wat to know the pixels between 2 nulls so you can create a right sized solid.

theres also a Cm/Inch option, that could be used if you want to know the real life size of something, but you have to have a object in you're scéne that you know the size of, like a door (about 2M) so you can define a px Per CM/Ince Value.

there are also some visualize options so you can see your distance. :mrgreen:

RGB Split/Chromic Abberation

Postby JorritSchulte on 11/22/2009, 6:58 am

This Preset Splits the Red, Green And Blue Channels
i was not planning to release it, but since everybody is giving away their solutions over the past days i tought, what the hell, i post mine to...
it's not a pixelbender plugin, but a preset so it will work on CS3 and above.

i like to have much controll, so i've included some cool, but useless options :P

also, i've created a simple Script to do the setup for you.

Image

How to use:
1 Instal The presets (it's inportant that you set the Jorrit Schulte Folder unchanged in \Support Files\Presets)

2. Place the script in \Support Files\Scripts.

3. Open AE, select your footage en go "File > Scripts > RGB Split v1.0.jsx"

if you dont want to use the script for whatever reason, you can also do the setup yourself, heres what you do:

Duplicate you're footage twice, call the 3 layers Red, Green & Blue.
and set the transfer modes of the 2 top layers to 'Add'.

Create a new Null (Inporant -->) Call the Null "RGB Split Controller"
and then you apply the Presets.

Pie Chart

Postby JorritSchulte on 11/22/2009, 7:01 am

with this Preset, you guessed it :roll: , you can create pie Charts!
there are shading options to give your chart just that little bit of depth.
also, you can animate your pie Charts on!

Now, there are some flows:
You can't have more than 10 Parts (values)
There is no automatic text, you'll have to add that yourself...

render times Pie Chart 1.0 VS Redgiant Datamator is Pie Chart 1.0 most definitely the winner

Yes.. like i said though, when i open the XML file it opens with explorer, whic doesn't let me paste anything inside. So i right click and open it with notepad, but it doesn't let me save back to XML. So i open it with microsoft word or the microsoft XML editor but it gives me errors. So i can't open the XML file and paste it inside. thats the problem.

Re: Jorrit Schulte's Custom Effects

Postby tony on 01/8/2010, 2:43 pm

the notepad takes the formatting away, but doesn't matter.. so when i scroll to the bottom the last three words are:

slider_max="1000"/>
</Group>
</Effect>
</Effects>

Do i put it in between the two effects or the group and effect?
