I love you guys. And I love DATA!

I made 4 free charts and graphs for you to play with. Enjoy!

You need this. Would I lie to you?

Hi there,

just bought your lovely data pops. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, though. Just playing around with some pie charts I tried to animate the slice-size over time. I can keyframe the labeled amount of each slice, but the size of the slice itself does not react to keyframing.

Any chance I can have a slice change its size over time?

Thanks in advance,
Sebastian

I'm not sure what you're trying to do. Can you show me with some screenshots?

Sure, will try to explain better. I'm coming from Pic 1 and want to get to Pic 2. I want the one slice to become bigger while the other gets smaller. Label numbers going with that.

I can keyframe the amount of each slice so I change values for both slices over time (see Pic 3 and 4).

Unfortunately what happens then is that the number in the label does change, while the slice itself stays the old size. (Pic 5)







What do I do wrong?

Woah, what's the deal with posting screenshots here? Took me about 30min plus some Pixelmator work to get this going??

I think I understand what you're trying to do.

You want the pie graph to animate from one state (40% and 60%) to a different state (20% and 80%). Is that correct?

If so, it's not possible with the current setup because the pie animates using the Ramp behavior. In order to do what you want you would need to add another Ramp behavior and use the Start/End value and offset parameters to get the right animation.

Does that help or did I just make things worse?

Yes, you got me right now, thanks for your answer. So I'll try to change things in motion then, am I right?

Sorry but I cannot resist to ask you, why this is not implemented. Or maybe the better question: why can I keyframe the values if the charts don't follow along? In what situation would it make sense to see the values change while the pie graph stays the same?

Unfortunately the plug-in is locked and cannot be opened in Motion. You should really, really implement this feature, please.

I sort of was misled looking at your sample movies. I saw you keyframe the amount and thought this would animate the pie chart as well - exactly what I was looking for for my current project. Unfortunately now I found out the hard way that it's not useful for my purpose.

Very beautiful templates, though, I really like them!

I didn't add this ability because I didn't think of it when I made the templates. I really like the idea and may incorporate it in the future. It's tough to put in all the awesome ideas. It's hard to make one template to rule them all. I'm sure Gollum would like that. :lol:

Overturf wrote: Or maybe the better question: why can I keyframe the values if the charts don't follow along?

You can keyframe because FCPX allows it but under the hood I used ramp behaviors and they finish their behavior within the first 24 frames. The behaviors override the keyframes.

Overturf wrote: In what situation would it make sense to see the values change while the pie graph stays the same?

I can't think of a situation where that would make sense. Remember, what you're trying to do wasn't the original intention of this template.

Overturf wrote: Unfortunately the plug-in is locked and cannot be opened in Motion. You should really, really implement this feature, please.

That's strange. In FCPX, right click on the template and select Open in Motion. It works fine for me. What happens when you follow my steps?

Overturf wrote: I sort of was misled looking at your sample movies. I saw you keyframe the amount and thought this would animate the pie chart as well.

Strange. Which video did you see me do that? I just reviewed the videos I made and I didn't keyframe anything.

Does that help?

Hi, thanks for your answer and yes, Gollum would like that ;)

I'm not sure what video I watched. Plus it is very possible that you did not actually keyframe anything but my mind just filled this in. I surely noticed that the keyframe-icon appeared next to an amount-slider but that might have been all... But now that I put that seed in your brain I will happily wait for an update ;)

Anyway, I really cannot open the motion file. Trying to do so (right-click on the pie chart in the titles tab, choosing "open in motion") leads to an error message saying "This document is locked and cannot be edited with motion. FXFactory products and motion templates are only available in Final Cut Pro."

Bad luck!

That's strange you can't open the file. It must be that I can open it since I created it.

I've written your idea to include it in the next version. Hopefully soon!

Hi Dylan,

now I'm playing around with the 2D-Text template. Is there a way to time WHEN the change from one text element to the next happens?

Let's say I have three text elements. The whole template is to last for six seconds. I do NOT want the text to change automatically like every 2 seconds but want to time those changes to a certain rhythm. First change after one second for example, and second after three seconds.

So far I put the whole title in a compound clip which I then blade and retime to adjust things properly. Isn't there a better way?

Hope you understood my question, sorry for being a bit rusty in English.

Thanks,
Sebastian

Hi Sebastian. Your English is great!

Currently there isn't a better way to change when the camera moves from one text to another.

Does your compound clip method work?

It does work, yes, but it takes its time. Plus by blading the CC you turn it into two clips of course, which creates another source for mistakes and hassle.

Would be lovely if you implemented that as well!

To be honest I love the looks of your templates but do still find them to be a bit too static. I use them on a transparent background and want to often adjust things to the picture below. To do so I have to turn the templates into CCs often (resizing etc) which makes it harder to change things on the fly.

Anyway, lovely templates and fast response, stay on that route, Dylan!

You're right. Compound method is slow.

Thanks for your input. I'll add it to my list for the next templates.
