Create Procedurally Animated Rhythmic Dancing Marbles


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 great post from Satya Meka. This tutorial was published in July 2009.

By now you should expect nothing less than amazing procedural animations from Satya and this tutorial is no exception. Inspired by this piece by Eamae Mirkin which was originally created using the processing programming language, Satya explains the required math background and shows you how to replicate this beautiful animation in After Effects.
