After Effects Shapes - Start Scale and End Scale??? To make branches from strokes?
on Aug 30, 2012 at 5:31:21 pm

Hi

I can't see any option to separately scale the start and end points of a stroke shape, to create a sort of branch or tentacle effect...I refuse to believe it doesn't exist...Basically I want my stroke shape to start out thick but then get thinner towards the end...Is there any expressions I can use to resolve this problem?

Thanks a lot in advance

I just can't believe they have all those options but nothing to perform such a simple task of course I may be wrong

Look into using AE's Write-on effect. It should do the trick.

Mr. Murray
You can use Write-on effect to make branches from stokes as Mr. LaRonde has said.
Here is the link for tutorial:






Also to make branches look more organic, try to use "Liquify effect".
