    Blinking Eyes in After Effects

    stevovibes Level 1



      I am working on my first all out animation video in After Effects. I have a vector graphic of a person and I want to make him blink frequently throughout the video.


      I am going to create several different versions of the eyes (all the way open, half way open, closed etc) and then place each of these images next to one another in the timeline to create the effect.


      But...I will probably need to do this hundreds of times throughout the video and I am looking for a faster way. Is there a way to attach the different images of eyes to a slider and keyframe the slider? I think that would speed up the process I just can't figure out how to do it.


      If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated. Below is a picture of the vector I am working with.
