Animating Illustrations Using Wave Warp in After Effects Free Tutorial Download
Hello there, my name is Kay and I’m a floppy dog fanatic…
In this class, I’ll show you how to use the Wave Warp Effect in After Effects to create cute wavy characters like Drivin’ Dawg here⤴ The wave warp is such a versatile tool, you can apply it to a wide variety of illustrations, all with widely different results!
This is a simple, step-by-step exploration of using the wave-warp effect from After Effects on specific parts of your illustrations.
Follow along with me to:
- Explore and apply the ‘Wave Warp’ effect in After Effects
- Illustrate a character with the ‘Wave Warp’ in mind in ready-to-animate layers
- Apply the ‘Wave Warp’ to different elements in your illustrations
- Export your new animation as GIF and MP4 ready for upload.
This class is aimed at illustrators who want to introduce movement to their illustrations using After Effects or simply for those wanting to know more about the ‘Wave Warp’. I will be using Procreate to illustrate, although any layer-based software can be used to create your illustration, such as Illustrator or Photoshop.
All my files from the class are available in the ‘Wave Warp Resources file’ so you can work with those, although I really recommend following along with the whole class, from sketch to animation, to create your own unique, animated illustration.
I have been animating my illustrations for quite some time now and I assure you, nothing brings more joy than seeing your creations brought to life through simple animation! If you’re ready, let’s do it.
