Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Review and next steps, part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects 01: Paper Cutout and Stop Motion Styles.
- Let's take a quick look back…and be all proud of ourselves for what we've learned.…We've created cut-out shapes…without ever using scissors.…Made paper robots without a single paper cut.…We took a boring font, and made it our own.…We textured, roughened, sketched,…and wiggled our way into the hearts…of inanimate robot beings.…Well, thank you kindly for spending…some time animating rough and ugly…with "Oh No" robots and myself.…I hope I was every bit as imperfect…as you had hoped I would be.…
For more about shape animations,…check out Mograph Techniques:…Shape Animation in After Effects.…For more about expressions, check out…After Effects Guru series, Keyframe Assistants…with Ian Robinson. Thank you,…happy animation, and I hope you dance your way…into the next course of this series.…
Mograph artist Owen Lowery shows how to build the text and image elements, add texture, and then animate the graphics for a stop-motion look. The lessons demonstrate how versatile Adobe After Effects' tools can be when you stretch them beyond their traditional uses and employ some creative problem solving. Members are encouraged to experiment and adapt the techniques shown to other styles and projects.
