A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!

Think about all the times in which you had to show a list of items, services, brands and so to create a carousel for your customers or for yourself.
Yes, the carousel is one of the most requested animations and ,quite frankly, building it is a very annoying, and time consuming task, especially if you have many items to place.
What would you think about a tool that can automatically create and animate a carousel?
Well, Carousel Creator is the solution! This script, which is compatible with After Effects for Windows and Mac, immediately creates your carousel.
No matter how many items you have to place: you just need to import them in a composition and press a button, the script will do the rest.
Of course you can customize many aspects of the carousel, for example you can:
- Change the distance between items
- Bring an item to the front with the magnification option
- Add or remove items in the carousel
- Choose whether to create a circular or a linear carousel
- Change the alignment from horizontal to vertical
- Select a different style of items visualization (rotate, front, flip, card revealer)
- Rotate the carousel manually or automatically
- Set the rotation time and the stop time
- Activate the infinite rotation of the carousel
- Change the interpolation for the auto animation (from linear to smooth)
If you’d like to see in the details how Carousel creator works, just have a look at the video tutorial!
Feel free to place any kind of content you like into your carousel: text, images, video footage.
- you can add infinite items
- smart comp length adjustment (the length of the comp automatically adjusts according to the rotation and stop times set for each item)
- it works with any comp resolution
Note: The script doesn’t create floor reflections (as shown in the video preview examples) but you can achive them with the free plugin: VC reflect. (all instructions in the videotutorial)
