LJ - basic shapes for After Effects

Lars Jandel

An After Effects preset file: Some basic shapes, which are adjustable via the effects panel.

Not a real update: No change regarding the functionality. Just some cosmetic changes to the implemented expressions, so they work with the new JavaScript Expression-Engine - introduced with After Effects CC 2019 - as well.

Rebuilt with Pseudo Effects. ...CS6 users will get the "Missing: " in the effect name, but everything works just fine.   ;)

The setup will prevent stroke width distortion when scaling the element in the viewport. New: A Multi-Shape to switch between rectangle, circle and strokes. Also zig zag and wave lines. Crop shapes to half. Various anchor point options, for thick strokes as well. etc

The scene is set up to be used with Ray Dynamic Textures: http://aescripts.com/ray-dynamic-texture/

A shout out regarding this amazing plugin to Sander van Dijk!

Without the plugin, you can still use the shapes and their controls via copy and paste, no problem.

It's free - have fun!

// I keep v1.1 available for now as well.
