Yearspace, my snazzy new timeline-making script for After Effects, is feature-complete and allllmost ready to go. Check out what you can do with it:
I’ve gone kinda nuts with the era background feature in these examples — it’s really fun to play with. As the timeline moves, the era regions slide back and forth with the years they’re linked to, but they function as mattes so their image backgrounds remain static. It looks super-cool in motion.
There are a few wonky bits that still need working out (and one missing function that seems to be just plain un-scriptable, sigh), but I’m hoping to have it done soon — I’m going to be using it a ton at work in the next few months.
Interested in beta-testing? Let me know!
