Learn how to limit your transform values using the clamp expression in After Effects.

If you create motion graphic templates or simply want to limit the values of a given parameter, then the clamp expression might be for you. Essentially, the clamp expression tells AE to set a minimum and maximum value for any given parameter. In the following video tutorial by Mikey Borup, we’ll take a look at how to use the clamp expression in After Effects. It’s fairly simple to follow. The tutorial covers:

  1. Opening the Expression Editor
  2. Defining Variables
  3. Pickwhiping

While the implications of this technique may be hard to envision, it could be very helpful when paired with other expressions like the linear expression.
