Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Create ropes, part of Mograph Techniques: Physics Simulations in After Effects.
…After creating the simulation inside Newton, we are ready to join…these little dots into groups and connect the groups to each one of the letters.…I'm going to turn off the audio momentarily…and hit zero in order to see the result.…And now we are ready to illustrate these as lines…that actually connect these dots that are moving in this timeline.…For that I'm going to use a script…from the same creators of Newton Motion Boutique.…
The name of the script is Connect Layers, it is a free script.…And I explained how to install it and what could be…done with it, in the first movie in the previous chapter.…So if you want more details you can go ahead and watch this movie.…I already have it in my system, so I'm going to…the file menu, and under Scripts let's fire up Connect Layers.…I'm going to move it out of the way over here.…In this example, we are going to use the rope simulation.…
Now, we need to define which are the layers that should be connected.…This is the reason that every group of layers have…different colors or different label tags here in the timeline.…
These lessons are perfect for motion graphics artists who want to create earthy physics simulations and add realistic motion to their projects.
