"fade" from one AI layer to another in After Effects
on Mar 21, 2017 at 9:25:17 am

Hello all

A question. Imagine. I made an illustrator file for a character looking left, and for a character looking straight & right (this due to some aspects like perspective, shadows on the ear etc).
I want it to look natural, when going Hans moves his head. Maybe I'm doing this completely wrong, but what would be the best way of achieving this?

Sorry, can you include more detail of what you're trying to do? Are you trying to create an animation of your character turning his head from left to right using three stills?

NO sorry needed, thanks for replying.
Ehm, let mee see. Actually, it are 2 stills. One for looking to the left, one straight. I was wondering wether there would be a way to make the paths fade smoothly into each other like mask paths, or a bit less smooth.
Now I'm playing with Opacity, but it just isn't smooth (obviously with only 2 frames)

It's pretty simple, yet hard to pull off in your case.

You're trying to use traditional cel animation, by making the beginning and ending cels but you seem to be unwilling to make the in-between cels. Make 'em and the animation gets easier. The actual process of creating those in-between cels isn't easy, but that's the life of a cel animator.

There are some styles of animation that you could play with, but if you're looking realism, I agree with Dave.
