Script 3.0 Beta

I'm going to be testing Jiggle & Grow 3.0 beta over the next couple days.

For those of you who use it, or want to try it, it is here: 3.0 via Google Drive

It "installs" the same way, drop that in your After Effects script folder (see current J&G installation instructions if you need help). Though now when you run the script a window will pop up and you control the script from there. No more blindly running it multiple times! Please just keep in mind this hasn't been fully tested, so if you run across a bug please let me know. I'll be fixing them as I run into them.

Soon...

Main script works - presets function works, just need to program in more of them besides default. Tools section also needs UberKey added to it, which was also corrected and finished, but won't be too bad.
Then it's off to the tutorial races. The main script itself is relatively unchanged, most were changes to try and get it to work in other languages.

Lesson Learned is now complete!

The last chapter in Lesson Learned is finally written. I struggled trying to settle on an ending that I thought was fitting, but I'm happy with this one. Since it's my first time doing anything remotely close to this I'm probably overly concerned about whether or not my references and foreshadowed plot points are either too obvious and laid on too thick or too buried and undecipherable. Obviously I don't want to give anything away, but pretty much all the developments here at the end are hinted at in other chapters. For a couple weeks here I thought I backed myself into a corner because of the rule that caused traits to not be traded without the original owner present, but writer's block, if it was that bad, is something that can be overcome with patience.

I do hope you enjoy(ed) it! I'll be making a pdf version available soon. According to Office, Lesson Learned took 4700 minutes to write, so that's nice I guess.

Jiggle & Grow 2.2.2

Version 2.2.2 has been uploaded for anyone to download - What's changed?

  • Simplified Mask generation is now included - script will ask if you want the cutout mask simplified so you don't have to work with lots of anchor points when creating the expansion mask. It will only follow through if there are enough points to work with. Working with the new simplified mask is a lot easier, but the mask won't line up 100%. You are free to add more points if needed.
  • Changed much of the code to compare points differently along the paths instead of basing it on anchor points. This should hopefully, finally, kill the mismatch of anchor points. (Error at line 244)
  • The script tries to auto 'reverse' rotation for you.
  • A new smear point has been added. Instead of having a single center smear point on each breast, there are now two in order to add a bit of wiggle to the movement. Currently very subtle, might get turned up later.
  • Toned down the number of smear points around the edges the script gives. It used to try for around 24-28. Now tries for around 10-20.
This version is much larger than the others, 90kb compared to 130kb. Most of it is the new simplify mask function, which is really cool by the way. It really helps out so you can cutout your image really tight and not have to worry about moving all those points later. You can even add more points to the simplified mask if you need more control, very useful. I spent the day testing it and finding bugs here and there, so I hope I got them all, but I'm not confident based on the number of cases I have to try. If you run into it crashing, please let me know the error and what you were doing, if you can send me the .aep file I can figure it out much quicker. Thank you to those of you that do this, I'm grateful you don't just give up on the script. Main J&G Page
