Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Path operators on shape layers, part of After Effects CC 2018 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] After Effects can further manipulate…a shape layer through use of nondestructive effects,…called path operators that can…deform and distort our initial shape.…We previously talked about Repeater and Trim Paths,…arguably the two most important ones.…Here, we'll take a look at a few other path operators…and see how their stacking order is important.…So here in this example, I'm just going to take me pen tool…and I'm going to disable my fill.…I'm going to click on the word Fill and select None.…
And under Stroke, I'm going to make that say Solid Color.…And for my solid color, yeah, white will do.…Make it 10 pixels wide and in the composition window,…I'm going to click once at the top left…and again at the bottom right to create a straight line.…Now that we have our straight line in there,…let's go ahead and twirl down our Shape Layer,…and with it selected,…I'm going to add in some path operators.…Let's start off with Wiggle Paths.…Now, Wiggle Paths, when we twirl this down,…we see that it's added a path operator…
