Tibor Miklos demonstrates the process for using TrapCode MIR in After Effects for creating an animated crumpled paper effect, with a technique that will rove useful for other projects.
In this tutorial, Tibor Miklos shows you how to create a crumpled paper logo animation with Trapcode Mir
TrapCode MIR creates 3D polygon mesh shapes in After EFFects, harnessing OpenGL making the effect previews instant. MIR will allow you to perturb the mesh by using fractal noise, create texture mapping, repeating geometry and works with After Effects native lights.
