View Full Version : Animating Effects? (Adobe After Effects)

04-17-2013, 01:16 PM
Hello! I'm not too sure what the correct term is, but I'm wondering how to "animate" an effect in After Effects.

An example.. Let's say I want to use the "CC burn film" effect on a clip that I'm editing. How do I animate the effect so that the burn gets worse and worse the longer the clip plays? I was hoping that it would be something similar as keyframing, but I've been searching around and can't find anything regarding it since I don't know the correct term to search for.

Here's another video on the subject:

BTW, how you set your keyframes will determine the length of burn time.

Yes, as "Director" said, use keyframes. This will work with any effect in AE.
