About This Class


I hope you're ready to get warm and cozy, because this class is gonna get comfy! In this quick class I'll show you how to quickly and easily create this procedurally generated effect in After Effects. Since it's procedural, whatever you plug into it comes out looking like a knit sweater - even animation! We'll use a combination of effects to build the knit pattern, yarn texture, and finishing effects. Plus we'll even cover some basic expressions to make working with this effect very easy.

Even if you're a designer who might not be very familiar with After Effects, or you're just not interested in animation, you can still harness that power of After Effects to apply this effect to still graphics. It's very easy to adjust and customize.

So, grab some hot cocoa, and let's getting knitting!

Jake's deep knowledge of after effects is easily accessible through his clear and concise explanations - really enjoyed learning this effect, can't wait to put it into practice immediately - thanks Jake! :D
Just in time for the Holiday season––thanks, Jake! Love the effect and how realistic it looks (all done natively in AE). Once again, you knocked it out of the park; the tutorial is nice, concise, and to the point. Keep it up and happy holidays to you and your family!
Great course! I like it very much!
