Pouring slime!
on Jan 20, 2007 at 10:24:20 pm

Hi! I'm cutting a video about slime, you know that green, slimy substance that sometimes have been very popular pouring over each other.

I would like to create a curtain with slime pouring from top to bottom of the screen filling it with green.

I'm an editor and not so used to work with Motion and AE. I made a slimy shape in Motion and then tried to animate the shape. That didn't work!

Can I do that kind of thing in Motion or do I have to hire an animator?

Thanks!

you should be able to do this quite easily,

1. Use the bezier tool to draw your shape in the first frame.

2. Click the record button.

3. Move the playhead to the end frame and drag the bezier points to their new position.

4. Click records button (to deactivate it).

5. Play it back and tweak as necessary.

Hope this helps.

Steve

Thanks, Steve!

I didn't think of the record function. It worked fine.

Thanks again!

Excellent, simple effect. Is there any way to give the shape a 3d effect so that it has depth?

OK, I found out my own answer. add a filter to the shape (aura) and turn the brightness rather high and keep the radiuses...radii pretty close to gether in value.
