I am still plodding away at my 100 days of animation exercises, this is attempt number 18, if my calculations and reorganizing files do not mislead me. I set out to learn about morphing shapes in After Effects today, how they're made and what they can be used for.
It involves strategically placing vertices, defining the first vertice from which everything moves, and different path shapes imported via Illustrator files. I didn't know any of this and found it all super interesting. Tried not to go off the rails too much, as I am wont to do when I see something shiny. But it was hard to stop at the smooth transitions and colours, so I added some effects just to spruce things up a bit.
