    Music visualization. Time remapping problem!

    tapio2003

      Hey everybody. I've been playing with music visualization on after effects a bit and am now in a bit of a pickle. Many music publishing channels have visualizations with particles and or animations which change speed depending of the music. I have a copy of Trapcode soundkeys so I can transform the music to keyframes and achieve such animations but here comes my problem.

       

      If I time remap a composition to play at time*1+input from sound keys after the kick hits animation goes backwards to where it would have been without the kick. Is there a way to make a pre-comp you time remap only go forward? Is there a way to make and expression that checks the value from the last frame or am I way off?

       

      How do for example Monstercat do their particle background. Is the speed ramping part of the particle generator or is there a way to get a similar effects by time remapping so it could be used on more diverse and interesting effects. All help and answers are greatly appriciated!
