Radio Frequency Animation - Clunky movement with Radio Waves

Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to animate a radio wave to change (based on different types of real radio frequencies) but the built-in Radio Wave plugin isn't giving me appealing results.

As you can see the transition between waves is very "mechanical" and not smooth enough for an explainer video (with narration and music)

If you want accurate waves you might be better using either the Audio Waveform effect. Or, if you are feeling brave you can use expressions, using the Sin and Cosine functions, to generate whatever wave you like? Best to post in the Expressions forum if you prefer the latter?

I agree with Angie. This is a case of where you would ideally create a somewhat complex expression on a Write-On effect rigged with sliders and then by animating the sliders get different wave types and modulations. Even if you spend forever optimizing audio files or generating synthetic frequency modulations in Audition or another audio program, AE's audio infrastructure itself and in turn any effect relying on it are way too limited to correctly render those wave types.
