Day 9 of the 30 Days of After Effects Series brings us magic morphing shapes. School of Motion’s Joey Korenman has a look at using some manual labor that will bring fit and finish to your animation – the had crafted look.

This is all wrapped in the premise of Morphing Shape Layers in After Effects by hand keying animation and adjusting curves in the graph editor.

School of Motion is running 30 Days of After Effects.  The event is sponsored by the Motion Design Department @ The Ringling College of Art & Design.

In addition to releasing a new video every Monday-Friday for the next 6 weeks, School of Motion and Ringling have partnered up to create a contest for visitors to the site.  A user-submitted project will be selected and reviewed by the Motion Design staff, with the review-session being filmed and shared on School of Motion and Ringling social media.  The winner also gets a 30-minute Animation Coaching session with Joey Korenman from School of Motion, and publicity from the contest.
