AEnhancers #04After Effects Scripts make things easier
One of the common questions about scripting is where to start. Alex, Paul, Stu, Mark, Lloyd, and a team too long to list, full of knowledgeable code warriors and brilliant animators, are pumping out more daily than you can imagine. With a massive library of archived tutorials, AEnhancers.com is one of the first places to start your education.
Aenhancers not only has script discussions, and messages from contributors who will help you build scripts, but also houses cut-and-paste content and easy to download script builds.
Oscar Magalhaes has created a great script which allows you to spread a number of 3D layers into the shape of a sphere. The expression makes groups (rows) of layers, and might be modified to create an open cylinder as well!
Free French lessons as well! (Rang = Row). However, if you're unfamiliar with spherical radii, cosine math, or other scary numbers, the only comfort I can give you is that Oscar has made the entire expression free for download!

Now that one of Aenhancer's founder, and submission leaders is here in Los Angeles, we will try to integrate some advanced discussions at our monthly MGLA (Motion Graphics Los Angeles) meetings.
