Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Create a Tree connection, part of Mograph Techniques: Physics Simulations in After Effects.
…In this movie, we'll take this state of the composition, which…has some hopping spheres all over the screen and the x,…y, z space of AfterEffects, and we are going to connect…them using the Connect Layers script that I've showed you before.…If you don't have access to it or you don't know how…to install it, go ahead and watch the first movie in this chapter.…But I already set it up so what I'm going to do is go to the file…menu and from the scripts menu I'm going to choose connect layers.…
The connect layers script will help you to join elements in your…especially if you'll have plenty of shape layers, like we have here.…It will also create ropes, tree, or triangulation, which…is new shapes that are being connected through expressions.…And they will keep update themselves according to the changes…or to the modification that you will do in your composition.…I can show you how this works.…
In this course, I'm going to also demonstrate the rope simulation.…But for now, we're going to use the tree one.…So I'm just going to move it out of the way over here.…
These lessons are perfect for motion graphics artists who want to create earthy physics simulations and add realistic motion to their projects.
