How to create behavior animations

Behavior animations allow you to add looping animations to elements in your compositions. This can be particularly useful for adding a flare or other living hold to an overlay.
To add a behavior animation to a composition, follow the steps below.

1. Add a behavior animation

  1. 1.
    Navigate to the in the composition tree and select a widget to add a behavior animation to.
  2. 2.
    Select the Behavior tab in the property panel to access the behavior animation controls.
  3. 3.
    Select the type of behavior animation you wish to add. (The type used in this example, Position X, makes the flare 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.
  • Effect: how you want the behavior to animate
  • Easing: the speed curve of the animation
  • Value Min and Max: the minimum and maximum values that the animation moves between, the duration of the animation, and the delay between each loop of the animation
In this example, the effect, easing, and min and max values are being set to make the flare pingpong horizontally at a certain speed and distance.
