Tutorial 154: One Source Procedural Animation

Joe Clay | Dec 14, 2018

This week, I was inspired by this interesting procedural animation on Reddit by u/key_framed. It made me think about making an entire animation using nothing but text and effects. So, as I always encourage you guys to do, I experimented within those constraints to see what I could come up with. As always, this only scratches the surface of what's possible.

I hope you guys go out and take it farther. The grid setups could work well with our previous AE tutorial, Tutorial 152: Procedural Circuitry.

Grab the Project Files

Get the project file through our Gumroad Store. This project file contains all of the comps shown in the tutorial with a couple of extras I made after I filmed. It also includes the drone footage so you can mess with that as well. A legacy version is included that will open in CC 2018. As I use Master Properties in the source comp, 2018 is the oldest AE this project will correctly function in.

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.
