Tutorial 134: Tiny Card Dancer

Joe Clay | Jul 27, 2018

This week, by request, we take a look at a cool effect from Pylik. We use a bunch of different glitch techniques like the ones we've show in our Glitchy playlist. Combined with the Card Dance effect, we build an effect that tracks itself to a face—or anything for that matter—using the luminance of some map layers.

And thanks again to our sponsor, School of Motion. Make sure to check them out!

Grab the Project Files

Get the project file through our Gumroad Store. The project files will work in legacy versions of AE. Some of the textured matte comps require AE CC 2018 versions that support Master Properties. I saved it out to an older version, but I'm not sure what kind of error you might get. Other than that, the test footage, textures, setups, and some extra unused items are all included in the download.

If you're buying project files, consider becoming a Patron. At the $5/mo. tier, you get access to project files as they come out and some tutorials also come with additional BTS content showing more of the builds.
