Liquid/Fluid After Effects - - From Buck
on Mar 27, 2012 at 5:36:36 pm

Hello and thanks for the help,

I am trying to figure out the process of recreating something like Buck's newest addition to motion graphics.

http://motionographer.com/2012/03/26/interview-buck-good-books-metamorphosi...

I can't find anything on the web about how to make fluid, liquid style transitions like they created; the way it morphs from image to image. In the interview they say they mostly used AE/PS/FL. Anyone have any references to sites explaining this or ideas?

Thanks a bunch,
Russell

Aside from the text, the only thing I see on that page is a slideshow with 30-frame dissolves between the shots. Is THAT what you mean?

Hey Dave,

No, it is the video at the top. Here is a link to the vimeo page of it.


Mostly looking for the stuff that happens about 14-44 seconds in, but the whole thing is amazing.

Thanks again,
Russell

Hey Todd,

I did watch that...it was helpful but I still can't figure out how to use after effects to animate like that; the organic flowing motions. . like when the coffee cup morphs into the woman at 15 seconds in.

Cheers,
Russell

I must be missing something, I didn't see where the 'making of' video was located?

The second video on the page shows breakdowns of the shots, and you can use those breakdowns to reverse-engineer how they were done.

I have been kinda figuring out how to recreate some of it by reverse engineering from the breakdown video, but a lot of the organic stuff I am still confused on how to re-create using after effects. This guy makes something close to what I am after but uses Cinema 4D to get the job done.






Are they morphing their shapes using flash maybe?
