Behavior Animation Tutorial

Behavior Animations allow you to add looping animations to elements in your compositions. This can be particularly useful for adding something such as a flare or other living holds to an overlay. 

To add a Behavior Animation to your composition, follow the steps below.  

1 - Add Behavior Animation

First, choose which widget to add the Behavior Animation to by clicking on the layer in the Composition Tree on the left. 

Click on the Behavior tab within the Property Panel to access the Behavior Animation controls. Select the type of Behavior Animation you wish to add (in this case we added "Position X" because we want our flare to move horizontally).

2 - Adjust the properties and values of the animation

After adding a behavior, you can adjust several of its properties to customize the animation to your needs.

Refine Your Behavior Animation


Effect - Choose how you want the behavior to animate.

Easing - Select the speed curve of the animation.

Values - Adjust the min and max values the animation moves between, the duration of the animation, and the delay between each loop of the animation.

In this case, we changed the Effect, Easing, Value Min and Max to make the flare ping pong horizontally at the speed and distance we wanted.

3 - Toggle behavior on and off

Click the checkbox on the left of each behavior to turn it on or off. Click the "X" on the right to delete it entirely.
