Hello community!

It's my first post here but I already found lots of answers to problems I had in the past.

I'm working on some show visuals and stumbled into a problem.

What I'm trying to make is a 2d world made out of triangles. Here's an example I created today:

The quickest method to achieve this I found so far:

1. Create the animation in After Effects
2. Apply the puppeteer effect,make the grid visible and adjust the number of triangles (I had to do each frame seperately)
3. Export a screenshot to photoshop and clean up the image, so that only the grid is left
4. Open in Illustrator and vecorize/enhance the grid
5. Import to AE
6. voilĂ !

What I'm looking for is a faster way to do this. Ideally I make the animation and AE does the rest.

Have you got any ideas how this could be done?

regards from zurich
