Twice a month we revisit some of our reader’s favorite posts from back in the archives of Aetuts+. Today we’ll look at a my first tutorial for Aetuts+. This tutorial was originally published in March 2009... Enjoy!
In this fun tutorial, Adam walks us through the write-on effect as well as a new way to implement Trapcode Particular to create the popular simulation of an appearing wisp of smoke. He shows us some options to this effect as well how to customize any logo apply these principles in any way you wish.

- 3D & Motion GraphicsRigging and Animating a 3D EyeDifficulty:IntermediateCompletion Time:MediumIn this tutorial, we will learn how to create a stylized, animated eye that moves and blinks using only tools found in After Effects CC. These tools and effects include CC Sphere, CC Split 2, Mesh Warp and Time Remapping. We will also set up some light animation "rigging" using expressions and null objects. This is an "eye-opening" tutorial for those looking to animate beyond the basic functionality of AE.Read More…
- 3D & Motion GraphicsCreating an Animation Remapping Function with ExpressionsDifficulty:AdvancedCompletion Time:ShortIn this tutorial, we'll show how to build an expression that remaps a complex animation to a simple completion slider. We'll then go on to show how to build the expression into a robust and reusable function that you can use on any property, and call like other After Effects native functions (toWorld or wiggle, for example).Read More…

- 3D & Motion GraphicsMake a Bruno Mars Animated Cassette TapeDifficulty:IntermediateCompletion Time:ShortIn this tutorial, we're going to show you how to recreate the stop motion tape effect from the Bruno Mars "Just the way You Are" video. At first glance the effect looks complicated but we are actually going to let the computer do most of the hard work for us, and by adding just a small amount of manual work, we will still be able to get the hand-made look.Read More…
