This was an experiment on bending a line into a predefined shape. We ended up using simple parenting and puppet tool. Both ways are good for certain situations. At the end of this episode I revealed an upcoming product that I completed a looooong time ago, but simply forgot about it. THe not recorded part was on scripting and creating a Camera Rig script based on my tutorial.

A couple of tips and tricks to improve your workflow with Trapcode Form and Trapcode Particular using expression and randomly generated values. If you missed the live session you also missed an additional hour of questions and answers. It was awesome.

Despite my huge efforts to make expressions less distant and less scary for After Effects users unfortunately I still get a lot of questions about them on my hotline and in my email. That’s why I thought that maybe it’s a good idea to start posting articles about them. What do you think?

This idea has just struck me like a lightning. We all want 3d models in AE, right? What if we really could? I already took few attempts of expanding the range of 3d features in AE and it’s not up to me to say whether they are useful or not, but I feel theres much more to be done. Well… we all know that there is a lot to be done, but I really think theres something that can be done while waiting for Adobe to introduce a 3d engine inside AE. But I will need your help to make our dream come true.

You all know that I’m a expression junkie. You’ve seen my tutorial and my approach to animating things. I hate keyframes, I love expressions. Even though sometimes I find using expressions very frustrating. Theres no way to declare global variables, create your own functions, or extend the build-in functionality. But there actually is a nice way to deal with that that you might not be aware of.

I’ve recently figured out a workaround to a problem that was bugging AE users since the beginning of time – how do one import Photoshop brushes into AE? Is it even possible? The answer is simple. No. It didn’t bother me that much until I wanted to use one of my brushes in AE.
