Create a rolling ball that reveals text as goes, using Adobe After Effects expressions.
In this class, I'll add a rolling ball to the animation we did in the previous class. You'll learn how to use expressions to get locations relative to a text, calculate sizes, and do some basic math. These are handy techniques when it comes to creating responsive templates.
I'll go through these steps in the process:
- Positioning the ball to reveal the text
- Sizing the ball to the text
- Calculating the ball rotation for a realistic roll
Follow me, as I'll continue to publish classes building on these skills.
Also, if you're like me, you're getting a bit lost with all those assets, clips, and folders, check out my friend Sonja's class on being efficient in After Effects.
