Oily Stratum: Improving the bubble

Oily Stratum: Improving the bubble

Posted on 08. Mar, 2007 by in After Effects

Dynamic scaling, controlled randomness and animating by audio keyframes. All is here! Make sure to check this one out.


The focus of this tutorial is how to take your animation to the next level by adding dynamic behaviours to the bubbles. Find out how to take control over random movement generated by the wiggle expression, and how to drive the animation using audio clips.

    I didn’t watch the tutorial yet but i really got confused about the pic used to illustrate this tutorial.

    It looks like the Jared Tabrel Flash Experiment liquid done 5 to 6 years ago!

    Actually Jared Tabrel footPrint is undeniable : check for your self : http://www.levitated.net

    of course this is about AE and not Flash

    and I’m not saying there is plagia in here…

    just pointing out the sobriety of Jared Open Source Work

    Thank you for tutorials that are for sure, helping out newbies get more self confident while attending Ae sessions ;)

      Maybe you should watch the tutorial first before posting a comment? Or at least read the description of the tutorial.

    @Meks. Sorry dude, always think before speak or at least remain your eyes open. You can also don’t deny from maltaannon work. It is indispensable and its hard to find such neat tutorials about AE on net.
