Fractal effect on Mask
on Jul 24, 2017 at 8:37:44 pm

Hey folks,

Hoping you're able to help me out. I'm trying to create a fractal effect around the outline of a custom shape I've got. So that the edges look like the below picture.



I'm currently using a mask on a solid and have tried using AE's own Generate>Fractal effect as well as AEScript's FractalMapper. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm most definitely no expert when it comes to generating fractal effects so if I'm doing something wrong or there's an obvious solution, please do let me know, I probably haven't tried it.

Many thanks

Nathan

Do you absolutely need a mask? If you don't you could use the Fractal effect on a solid in a nested comp, then use the nested comp as a track matte.

I'm currently using the mask to create the specific shape I'm going for. I want the edges of that shape to look all distorted and broken up like in the above picture.

Have you tried Auto Trace to make a mask?

Yeah, that's what I'm using at the moment.

How complex is your shape?

It's a silhouette of a walking man so it's moving and what not.
