Tutorial 27: Folding

Joe Clay | Jul 15, 2016

In this tutorial we look at a technique to fold anything like a piece of paper. There's a note in the tutorial to make sure your back layer is flipped horizontally. That will make everything align correctly. If there's any text you want to be legible in your background, you definitely need to flip it.

Another cool thing you can do, and that I've done before with this technique, is to print out logos, or whatever you want to fold and then you can fold it in real life before you fold it in AE.

If you'd like, you can download the project file so you can get a better idea of how it works. The project file is also corrected. Feel free to use the project file in your work!
