You could use the Paint tool internal to After Effects, or you could create everything in Illustrator or Photoshop, bring it in to After Effects, then apply an animated Turbulent Displace to it. Here's an interesting tutorial on the second method:

Joe points you to the STATIC effects. However, the camera moves in your example. You would need to motion track as well.

Plus there is some classic cel animation in that example, which certainly can be done in AE with a good deal of work... so it's difficult to know precisely what you want to do.

I presume you don't want to do work...... but I could be wrong.

hi,

thanks for writing back. what am thinking of doing is like animating the glasses and other small graphics on the screen.

i have created the glasses on Photoshop, imported it into AE, used auto-trace to create the mask which i then linked to a stroke.

only problem i have is the shot of the clip is facing away,having problems placing the glasses on the face of the character correctly.
as you mentioned motion track,do you reckon that could solve the problem.

Since those glasses are line art -- done either in Photoshop or in Illustrator, most likely -- you need to design your line art to fit the perspective of the subject.

And if the subject or the camera move, you need to take that into account as well. For your sake, pray to the Good Lord that the subject's head doesn't turn, exposing a new perspective. You would then have to come up with a way to make the glasses match the new perspective as well.

You're right, Dave - I was concentrating on the line art wiggling part of it, and ignored the whole tracking aspect. The jittery graphics is the easy part!

Y'know what, Joe? If that's the only oversight you make within the next three months, it will still be about 20 less than mine. You know more than I do about the really complicated stuff.

I'm glad they don't kick me off the COW after some of my gaffes....

Thanks for the vote of confidence! There's some days when I couldn't pour water out of boot if it had the directions on the heel..
