In this new free video tutorial on After Effects, we'll focus once again on shape layers. We will see how to use them for a typographic composition rich in details, from simple manipulations.

Then we will see how to animate our typography, with a burst into hundreds of particles that doesn't require any plugin or effect! Only one shape layer.
We will also add a random motion to give an organic look to our text.

  • Creating a typography composed of hundreds of circles, on a single shape layer
  • Random animation on individual circles to give life
  • Scattering and animation effects for an effect close to a particle simulator
  • Graphic experiments using different tools specific to the shape layers
