Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Shaking the scene with Wigglerama behavior, part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects: 1 Paper Cutout and Stop Motion.
- In zero seven zero five,…I've got some nice wiggle going on.…But I'm not done wiggling just yet, no sir.…To help unite everything in this scene…and to fake the look of a little camera shake,…I'm going to add a unified wiggle to the entire scene…using the Wigglerama behavior.…I'll pause playback by hitting the space key right now…and then I'll add a new adjustment layer by going to…layer, new, adjustment layer.…Adjustment layers are layers that you add effects to…and those effects will affect everything below that layer.…So, when you go to the effects in preset search window…and type in, wiggle, we can add the Wigglerama behavior…to this and it will affect everything below it.…
As you can see, we immediately have some pretty…extreme changes going on.…But let's go ahead and hit the space bar to…see what we actually have animated.…Yeah, this is way too extreme,…were going need to dial it back a bit.…I'm going to pause playback…and go up to the effects controls panel.…In the Wigglerama settings,…I'm going to change the wiggle speed to two.…
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.
