Hi,

Is there a possible way please of using Time Remapping to slow down or freeze only part of a single

video layer in AE? The part i want to slow down are leaves falling from a tree branch but still want

the branch to contine at same speed. Tried duplicating the layer, but the tree and leaves now look

kind of embossed or bevelled. Thankyou.

You will need to create a Clean Plate for the background with many, if not all, of the leaves removed. Then, you need a layer with just leaves for an overlay. Trying to isolate only the leaves from the original footage is going to be a lot more difficult than using a particle system like Trapcode Particular (from Maxon) to generate the falling leaves. 

 

If you could embed a screenshot of the original footage (drag or paste it to the reply field instead of using the Drag and drop... button to attach it), we could tell you if it was feasible to turn the shot into a clean plate. You may also need to create a middle ground and foreground layer with a different leaf layer between each of those layers.

Thankyou, quite proud of myself that ive now managed to work it out but its a time consuming process!

Duplicated the layer removed all Time Remap keyframes and then split it, removed and cut the first part

and then masked out the branch. Finally readding the TM keyframes.
