    Vertical Parallax

    Vanessa_14

      i am trying to create an animation where things are moving up in the sky. I followed a tutorial on how to do a parallax but horizontal. In the video, he uses expressions. They do work on my project but I need it to move up, not side to side. Does anyone know how? I've attached the tutorial video. Thanks!

          Why don't you just keyframe the Y position instead on each layer at different speeds?

            ...and why are you watching youtube tutorials from some guy named "mikey"?  Now, that's a handle that engenders trust and projects competence!

            Sounds like the 3-year-old kid from the Quaker Life commercials:  "He likes it! Hey, Mikey!"

             

            If I were you, I'd check out the tutorials from Adobe, the Creative COW, videocopilot or the pro video coalition.  Learn from the pros, not some high school kid.

              Well you know "side to side" is the x parameter right?  And "up and down" is the y parameter, right? 

              And if you watch the video you see that when he creates the expression "x" is "position 0",  & "y" is "position 1", right?

              So do what he did only do it for "position 1" instead of "position 0".

               

              But to borrow a little from each of the other replies:  If I were you, I'd just key frame the y position on each layer at different speeds.

                Vanessa: Does the advice from Gutter-Fish work for you?

                  Actually, this isn't a high school Kid. Mikey is a pretty good tutorial guy (who is very much an adult) and he makes some useful little AE tools as well.
