I am building an animation which depicts the building of an element in Photoshop using grid, guides, and bezier paths. I need to represent these items graphically, and not using a screen grab animation.
I need to zoom into a comp up to 800% and show how paths and grid are manipulated in pixel-perfect work. When zooming in, the paths that show the grid and the bezier paths must stay at 1px in width at all zoom levels.
I'll be creating "bezier" strokes using the path tool in AE. I'll be applying a line weight to it in order to show the strokes. When I zoom in, the strokes need to stay the same weight.
What's the easiest way to accomplish this?
You would link the stroke width of e.g. a shape layer to the zoom/ scale with a linear() expression.
Fill in values as needed. The actual zoom varable could be linked to a slider ir the scale of the pre- comped main animation in the parent comp...
That's an interesting idea. I'll attempt that.
