About This Class

Learn to morph between shapes, objects, or icons inside of After Effects. With this class I want you to learn how to properly work with shape layers and their paths. How to create those paths, import them from other programs like Illustrator or Photoshop and use them with a hanfull of tricks to be able to morph & transition between each other. We will be working of course in our favourite motion graphics software - Adobe After Effects. This class is a tiny bit more advanced than the "Line Logo Reveal" animation class so it hepls if you have very basic AE knowledge
