Thanks you, I did this and rendered my video and the url was not active, could you please give me more information or a link to more info. I am new to After Effects.
As for the adobe Help Link here: Layer markers and composition markers in After Effects
When you render a composition that contains markers, the markers can be converted to web links, chapter links (chapter points), or cue points, depending on the output format and values that you set in the marker dialog box. Markers can also be exported as XMP metadata. (See XMP metadata.)
Have same problem and link provided to Adobe help is of no help.
Here's the setup:
No layer selected
Position play head in AE comp
Click Layer, Add Marker
Click on marker, go to Settings
Enter in URL: www.etc.
(Have also tried http://www. etc.)
Render in AME with Quicktime, DNxHD, Windows Media but...
No joy. (What I'm expecting is that when the video is played and the playhead hits the time at which the marker was set, the website spec'd in the URL will open)
Guess I'm not inputting it correctly. Please Help.
after a little of digging around, what I have found is there isn't much information about it in the CC adobe help files or the forums - by looking at the cs4 help files, there was a bit more information Adobe After Effects CS4 * Layer markers and composition markers here's the relevant text:
You can associate a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) with a marker to create an automatic link to the site at that address. After Effects embeds this information within certain kinds of movies, including SWF, Windows Media, and QuickTime movies. When these movies are played in a web browser, the embedded URL is recognized, initiating a jump to the specified URL. You can target a specific frame in the site. For example, you can have specific web pages open when an instructional video reaches specific points in the movie.
When these movies are played in a web browser - this is the key for figuring out how it works. I haven't got a site where I can embed videos and test this out. meaning you need to have web page to include your videos in and try to work with this information and report if it works
