Create a Rhythmic 'Beat-shake' Effect

Read Time: 1 min

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 tutorial from John Schlemmer that was first published in Feb 2009. In this tutorial you'll learn how to make moving geometric shapes shake and shudder as if they've been moved by the vibrations of a beat. You'll learn how to sync this effect to music and create the building blocks of a stunning and futuristic music video.

Make sure to watch the addendum posted below the tutorial where John explains how he used Photoshop and After Effects to create the organic background that is used throughout the piece.
