AEScripts Slice it Up 2 for After Effects
What is it
Slice it Up is a tool that cuts footage into any number of slices by duplicating it N times and applying random width masks to it. Those pieces are brought into one composition later and laid one over another to create an undistorted image. The tool provides controls to set random or linear offset to X, Y and Z position for each slice, adjust the expansion and rotation angles for the mask.
One of the most flexible things that Slice It Up provides is the ability to randomise slices in the UI panel at any time. If you don’t like the width of your slices and feel like a change up, just randomise them in UI. If randomised position is not your taste, re-randomise it at any time without loosing your keyframes even after closing and opening the project.
While those buttons regenerated a new seed for width or position, button “<” will take one step back and regenerate previous seed value. This way you are free to skip through possible options and find a look that fits you best.
