David Van Brink makes a note about the Omino Snake Plugin for After Effects which allows you to bend an After Effects layer along a bezier path in After Effects. David Van Brink notes: It was written late one night for a specific purpose. I was doing some promotional animations for my friends’ Science Tarot deck, and got to “High Priestess, Benzene Dream” in which Friedrich August Kekule von Stradonitz dreams of a snake eating its tail. And this was the mystery of the benzene ring-shaped molecule.
