Tutorial 111: Wood Grain and Visualizers

Joe Clay | Feb 23, 2018

This week was kind of a tough one for me, since I ended up being way busier than I expected. So I took on a simpler tutorial I was asked about, but I couldn't leave it without adding to it. So we start off talking about wood grain and end up building a visualizer effect. We use Red Giant's Trapcode SoundKeys to accomplish this effect, though you can get there in a more difficult route with less customization using our Tutorial 70: Pump up the Jam. We'd definitely recommend the SoundKeys route.

There's a lot of associated expressions involved as well, so instead of listing them all here, I've made the project file available.

And at the end we talk about a 15K giveaway brought to you by Amazing Music Tracks. To enter, follow us @workbench_tv, then tweet out your favorite Workbench tutorial or the one you found the most helpful to you, and don't forget to tag us at the end! The winner will be chosen randomly.
