Oliver Randorff shows how to use random expressions in Ae to animate popping corn.
A new tutorial from Oliver Randorff shows how you can use expressions in After Effects to help animate a popping corn animation. The tutorial covers using a mix of keyframes and expressions to complete the task.
Random Expressions in Ae.
Oliver shows how you can create and animate a single piece of popcorn and then duplicate it into a bucket full. The setup is one that will randomize the expression for every duplicate. Each copy will have a randomized color, rotation and time.
In a parallel relevant post, a little while ago, a new tutorial from Creative Dojo’s VinhSon Nguyen showed how you could get better randomization in After Effects expressions.
