How to Create a Tunnel Effect in After Effects

Noble Kreative shows how to create an outline tunnel effect in Ae using only standard tools.

Najib Khayati dives in with a new After Effects tutorial that shows how to create a neat-looking outlined animation effect in After Effects. We’ve all seen the animated effect that looks like a camera moving through a tunnel. It’s a dynamic move that we often see as a smart way to create a transition between two scenes. In this case, Khayati is using it as a logo reveal.

The animated outline tunnel in the video uses only standard After Effects tools, like the Vegas effect of creating the repetitive instances of the source element. Khayati uses a free script called KeySmith to help with the animation of the tunnel scene.
