The posterize time After Effects feature, which allows you to divide time into specific ranges and have the effects stay in each range, gives you a lot of control and flexibility over your animation. Here's how to do it.
To enable the Posterize Time Expression, select the layer and open up its Transform Properties panel. Once there, open up the expressions menu and choose 'time>posterize Time' which will allow you to specify how many divisions between frames for that layer. With this feature, you can easily add dynamic movement to any visual project!
You might add the phrase posterizeTime(x) to certain properties, such as position, if you want those values to apply posterize time without impacting the others. where X is the desired FPS, for example 12.
Position field should look like this:
This will use the curve keyframes but output in 12 FPS.
The first step is crucial. In Adobe Premiere Pro, every visual element you work with is on a layer. Think of layers as sheets of paper stacked on top of each other. The layer you want to apply the Posterize Time Expression to needs to be selected. To do this:
Once you've selected the layer, you'll need to dive into its Transform Properties. This is where you can manipulate how the layer behaves over time.
Expressions are powerful tools that allow you to apply specific behaviors to your layer. To access the expressions menu:
Now, you're ready to apply the Posterize Time Expression. This expression lets you control the frame rate of your layer, giving it a unique, stylized look.
Your text box should now read:
This means that even if your project is set to a higher frame rate, this layer will only update its position 12 times every second, giving it a distinct motion.
With the expression applied, it's time to see the results.
You should notice that the layer you applied the expression to moves in a unique way, different from the other layers. This technique allows you to add a dynamic touch to your project, making certain elements stand out.
PS - you can also add a wiggle to your expression.
