Hey fellas,

I've been wondering quite a while how to make effects similar to these :

https://dribbble.com/shots/1433198-Zuck-Dawg-making-it-rain

You see, those money/paper movement is really nice and I was wondering if I can do that in AE. I've been using Page Turn but the effects just not the same.

Thanks before!

If you have a CC version of After Effects you can do this with Cinema 4D Lite (included with AE CC). It will be a bit of a learning curve, but well worth the time.

Basically you'll create a Plane and modify it with the Bend Deformer. You can use Bend Deformer's coordinates and falloff to get the desired effect.

You'll have to learn a bit about C4D workflow and AE integration before taking those steps, but once you're there it will be pretty easy.

Here's a link with a tutorial to get you started...

There are several more helpful tutorials on the site for C4D Lite and the full versions of C4D.

Best of luck!

Bob

Ahhhh....

Just saw that Lite has the Wind deformer.

I'd use that instead of the Bend Deformer. It's much easier to get an organic look and you'll get it done much faster and with more flexibility.

Link below has a quick example.

Take a look at this 30 second TV commercial I did.

This was done in After Effects with the Bezier Warp filter. Hope this helps and best of luck.

The first example you showed is definitely most easily created in C4D for sure. but for the second example, it could just be some animated shapes moving across the screen simply. then apply the effect "turbulent displace"

you'd animate the shapes or art or whatever to follow the general path of where you want them to go, and the turbulent displace will give them a little more life like they're waving around as they move.
