Easily Create an Animated Iris Effect in Cavalry

Chris Hardcastle shows how easy it is to create an animated iris effect in Cavalry with a Line Primitive.

Another Cavalry tutorial shows how the procedural 2D motion graphics app makes short work of complex tasks. Chris Hardcastle walks through how you can create an animated iris effect using Cavalry’s basic line primitive, a duplicator, and index to color

“Duplicate a line to create an iris effect and use the ‘Index to Color’ Atom to give each line a color.”

It almost seems like most every plugin, script, preset, or extension out there for After Effects comes native in Calvary out of the box. While Calvary has a way to go, what’s here today is amazingly promising.
