Greetings folks! I have a bit of a question that I thought would be easy, but apparently is a bit trickier than I realised.
I'd like to render the wave-form of a song in a composition in AE. It's simple enough to add a complete circle path, add the Audio Spectrum effect, and then set it to use the circle. However, I'd like to position the circle half off-screen (Along the bottom), and have all of the audio spectrum visible on just the half that's visible.
I thought it would be as easy as deleting the points of the mask in order to make a non-closed path that fits the shape I want, however it seems that with the default settings, Audio Spectrum won't work on non-closed paths.
Has anyone managed to solve this with Audio Spectrum before? If not, is there maybe a more advanced third party plugin I could potentially look into?
Hi Rick! Oh! You're right! I just tried copying what you did and it worked fine for me! Thanks for that!
That's so weird. So I guess the difference is if you create a non-closed path from scratch, it's fine. But somehow when I tried to "open" a closed path, I ended up breaking it somehow. I'll keep this in mind for next time.
