I am running OSX 10.6.4 and AE 5.5
I have logo animation I'm working one and have chosen to use Turbulent Displacement to distort and 'grow' a leaf as it swings into frame. As soon as I start to adjust the Effect it is applied, which is just fine as the leaf is out of frame, however I need the leaf to finish in it's proper shape as part of the logo at the end - with no TD. I have an Adjustment Layer with the Effect on it and I can change the Opacity to 0 but there's a slight visible dissolve I'd prefer not to see.
Is there a similar effect which I can "zero" out with keyframes to allow the proper logo shape to be displayed?
Or is there a control in Turbulent Displacement I'm missing to remove/turn off the effect when desired? Or better still, how do I "ramp" the effect to the objects original shape/state??
Thanks very much!
Add keyframes to the amount in Turbulent Displace. 0 means zero displacement. That should fix your problem. Animating the opacity of the adjustment layer isn't the best way to animate this effect.
So simple - thank you!
