Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating the shock wave, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
Now we all know one of the fundamental basics for creating animation is…exaggeration. And that's what we're going to do in this…specific video. We're going to create a shockwave blast…that shoots off the soccer ball once our player kicks the ball.…So if we scrub through the scene, you'll notice we have the particles wrapping…around the ball but no shockwave. So, let's start by positioning our current…time indicator to around Frame 12. Now, we need to do a little housekeeping…before we create our shockwave. Let's select Layer 1 and rename that layer…Base Particles. Now we'll create our shockwave based off…of these particles. So with Layer 1 selected, lets press…Command+D to duplicate. Control+D on Windows.…
Now since we don't need the shockwave to appear until our soccer player kicks the…ball, let's trim the inpoint of our layer by pressing Option+Left Bracket or…Alt+Left Bracket on Windows. To further focus our attention, let's…enable Solo for Layer 1 and Layer 4. That way those are the only two layers…
