Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding ink bleed and stain, part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects: 2 Design and Animation.
- In 04_03 I have a pretty nice draw on animation…but ink and paint will soak in to paper…and bleed at the edges of lines.…Sometimes it's not very noticeable but it's there.…And it's the kind of detail that causes people…to feel like something's missing,…even if they're not sure what exactly it is.…So I'll fake some ink bleed at the edge of my drawing.…This will barely be noticeable…but again that's just how i want it.…I'll hit the space bar to pause playback.…And first things first, I'll select my Robot Outline.…
And hit command + d to duplicate this layer.…I'm going to turn off the eyeball…in my original Robot Outline and close it up.…I'll take my duplicate drag it below the original.…And I'm going to rename this one Robot Outlines Stain…I'll hit "u" on both of these layers, so I can actually see…the keyframes for the trim path's animation.…Just so I know where they're both at.…What I want to do is offset the staining so it happens…a little bit after the original line draws on.…
I'm going to drag and select all of these keyframes…
