Stop-motion animation using paper cut-outs can take quite a bit of time to produce... unless you use The Paper People effect! This technique gives you similar results in a fraction of the time. With the use of a current version of AE, you'll use the wiggle expression, hold keyframes, and the puppet tool to emulate the classic look of a beloved form of traditional animation.
