Hey guys,

Im having real trouble animating a nice rounded smooth audio waveform in AE. Ive tried audio spectrum / waveform, wave warp etc.

I either end up with a sharp pointy waveform or one that just repeats itself (wavewarp)

This is the effect im going for http://postimg.org/image/90b880vjp/


Any help much appreciated!

James

i'd try turbulent displace...

create a solid and add a simple straight line with the pen tool

add the stroke effect

add turbulent displace and animate the evolutions and possibly the offset.

add the echo effect, set number of echoes to 5-10, decay to .75 (or so) and adjust the echo time to suit, and you should be pretty close.
