Hi guys,

I'm looking for some tips on how to make a video like this one:

I have few specific questions:

1) Do you think it was made in After Effects?
2) Do you think the graphics were made in After Effects or Illustrator (or something else)

Also I'm interested in how the following was done:
1) Morphing one object into another (e.g. 00:21 to 00:24)
2) Populating screen with same image and wiping the images (00:32 to 00:34)
3) Expanding animation of multiple objects: (00:58 to 1:01)

Thanks for any answers and tips!

It can be done in After Effects (except modeling the 3d model of the chromebook).

Most usual workflow is to design in a package like AI and then animate in AE, but it could be done entirely in AE.

Second set

1- you can animate the shapes in a Shape Layer to create that kind of morphing.

2- there are plugins that ca help you do that - a particle system with a custom particle and a animated displacement map could help, transitions or even the CC Kaleidoscope plugin.

3- Lots of time and patience mixed with camera moves and some of the plugins above.

My main point I guess is that in AE things can be done in a variety of ways. Take time to learn them - one question at a time on a specific issue is better than many questions on various subjects all at once. Unfortunately there are no one click plugins that can do everything.

Thank you, Tudor, very helpful! I am definitely trying to learn all the various ways in which you can do things in AE and will bear in mind your advice about posting individual questions separately.

Thanks again,
