How to Create Classic Speed Lines in After Effects

Jason Boone Shows How to Create and Animate the Anime-Style Speed Lines in After Effects With Shape Layers.

Premium Beat and Jason Boone show how you can jazz up your video projects with a fun motion graphics technique in After Effects that is based on the Anime style. After Effects shape layers are perfect for creating this type of work, allowing you to easily build and animate anime-style speed lines.

Staking Shape Layer Animators is key for the effect, putting together a path, repeater, wiggle paths, and wiggle transform. Working this way makes it simple to animate and reuse the speed lines effect, or even build it into a preset that you can use over and over again. See the complete tutorial on PremiumBeat here.
