Tone Generator

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 | Blog, Downloads

You know, there is a tone generator in AE. Cool. You could feed it some sine waves and then move the plot point of a particular emitter around.

Here’s the code on the tone generator‐ a sine wave multiplied by another sine wave that’s been wrapped in an absolute method, that’s then added to the keys, which are then looped.

Math.sin(time*5)*50) * Math.abs(Math.sin(time*4)) + effect(“Tone”)(“Frequency 1”).loopOut(“cycle”)

Feel free to move Frequency2‐5 around or change the tone waveform options around, and chart the result.
