What is AutoSway 1.86 and what are its features?




AutoSway 1.86 is a script for After Effects that lets you easily make your layers sway. It is developed by aescripts + aeplugins, a leading provider of tools and scripts for motion graphics and visual effects.


AutoSway 1.86 has two modes: Puppet Pin Tool mode and Layer mode.


Puppet Pin Tool mode allows you to apply sway to a single layer that has Puppet Pins applied. You can use this mode to create realistic animations for plants, flags, hair, cloth, ropes, and more.


Layer mode allows you to link multiple layers together and sway them in 2D or 3D space. You can use this mode to create realistic animations for chains, pendulums, bridges, and more.


AutoSway 1.86 has the following features:


  • Easy setup: just apply pins or link layers and click apply



  • Realistic motion: simulates wind, gravity, inertia, and decay



  • Customizable parameters: adjust speed, strength, direction, frequency, and more



  • PseudoEffects: makes the effect controls easier to see and use



  • Bake function: converts the motion to keyframes for further editing or exporting



  • Unbake function: restores the original state of the layers before baking



  • Compatibility: works with any layer that has Puppet Pins or that can be linked together



  • Support: works with After Effects CS6 and above on Windows and Mac

How to adjust the settings and parameters of AutoSway 1.86?




To adjust the settings and parameters of AutoSway 1.86, you need to select the "[SwayControl]" layer and use the effect controls panel. Here are some of the main parameters that you can adjust:


  • SPEED: controls how fast the layers sway



  • DIRECTION: controls which direction (angle) the layers sway



  • FREQUENCY: controls how often (cycles) the layers sway



  • RANDOMNESS: controls how random (variation) the layers sway



  • DAMPING: controls how much (friction) the layers slow down after swaying



  • GRAVITY: controls how much (force) gravity affects the layers after swaying



  • BENDINESS: controls how much (flexibility) the layers bend while swaying



You can also use keyframes or expressions to animate these parameters over time for more dynamic results.


How to bake and unbake the motion of AutoSway 1.86?




Baking and unbaking are functions that allow you to convert the motion of AutoSway 1.86 to keyframes or vice versa. This can be useful for further editing or exporting your animation.


To bake the motion of AutoSway 1.86, you need to follow these steps:


  • Select the "[SwayControl]" layer and go to the effect controls panel.



  • Select "[bake]" from the Bake dropdown menu.



  • You will see a new layer named "[Baked]" added above your original layers.



  • This layer contains all the keyframes that represent the motion of AutoSway 1.86.



  • You can delete or hide the "[SwayControl]" layer if you don't need it anymore.



  • You have successfully baked the motion of AutoSway 1.86.



To unbake the motion of AutoSway 1.86, you need to follow these steps:


  • Select the "[Baked]" layer and go to the effect controls panel.



  • Select "[unbake]" from the Unbake dropdown menu.



  • You will see a new layer named "[Unbaked]" added above your original layers.



  • This layer contains all the effect controls that represent the motion of AutoSway 1.86.



  • You can delete or hide the "[Baked]" layer if you don't need it anymore.



  • You have successfully unbaked the motion of AutoSway 1.86.



How to use AutoSway 1.86 with different types of layers?




AutoSway 1.86 can work with any layer that has Puppet Pins or that can be linked together. However, depending on the type of layer, you may need to adjust some settings or use some tricks to get the best results.


Here are some tips on how to use AutoSway 1.86 with different types of layers:


  • Shape layers: Shape layers can be swayed using either Puppet Pin Tool mode or Layer mode. However, if you use Puppet Pin Tool mode, you need to make sure that the shape layer is continuously rasterized. Otherwise, the shape layer may not render correctly.



  • Text layers: Text layers can be swayed using either Puppet Pin Tool mode or Layer mode. However, if you use Puppet Pin Tool mode, you need to make sure that the text layer is continuously rasterized. Otherwise, the text layer may not render correctly.



  • 3D layers: 3D layers can be swayed using Layer mode only. You need to make sure that the 3D switch is enabled for all the layers that you want to sway. You also need to adjust the Z position and rotation of the layers to create a realistic 3D effect.



  • Pre-composed layers: Pre-composed layers can be swayed using either Puppet Pin Tool mode or Layer mode. However, if you use Puppet Pin Tool mode, you need to make sure that the pre-composed layer is continuously rasterized. Otherwise, the pre-composed layer may not render correctly.



How to troubleshoot common issues with AutoSway 1.86?




AutoSway 1.86 is a powerful and easy-to-use script for After Effects. However, sometimes you may encounter some issues or errors while using it. Here are some common issues and how to troubleshoot them:


  • The script panel does not open: If the script panel does not open when you select "AutoSway" from the Window menu, you may need to check your script preferences. Go to Edit > Preferences > Scripting & Expressions and make sure that "Allow Scripts to Write Files and Access Network" is checked.



  • The script does not apply: If the script does not apply when you select "[apply]" from the Apply dropdown menu, you may need to check your layer selection. Make sure that you have selected all the Puppet Pins or all the layers that you want to sway before applying the script.



  • The script gives an error message: If the script gives an error message when you try to apply or adjust it, you may need to check your layer names. Make sure that none of your layers have the same name as "[SwayControl]", "[Baked]", or "[Unbaked]". These names are reserved for the script and may cause conflicts.



  • The script slows down After Effects: If the script slows down After Effects or makes it crash, you may need to reduce the complexity of your animation. Try lowering the speed, frequency, randomness, or bendiness parameters of AutoSway 1.86. You can also try baking the motion of AutoSway 1.86 to reduce the load on expressions.



If none of these tips help, you can contact the aescripts + aeplugins technical support for further assistance.
