Hey, fellow bovinae!

What would be the best way to 'paperify' the video? As if this video is printer on a wrinkled paper - but the surface is supposed to 'wiggle around' so to say.

Thanks in advance

Grab a still camera, a light and a sheet of paper. Put the paper on the floor. Wrinkle it. Aim the camera at the paper. Aim the light at the paper. Take a picture.

Now mess the wrinkled paper up a little. Take another picture. Repeat the process until you have a lot of pictures.

Import all the pictures into AE as an image sequence. Play with the frame rate in the interpret footage settings. Tweak the frame rate ss necessary, and make the sequence loop several times in the interpret footage settings.

Add the image sequence to a comp with video in it. Add the levels effect to the sequence. Use one of the blend modes on the sequence -- overlay, screen, pin light, what have you.

Play around with the sequence's opacity and the levels effect and the blend modes until the effect looks the way you want.

That's all there is to it.

Thanks a lot for the reply;

I'm trying to avoid the 'stop-motion' look and going for the more fluid movement...

Well then, you're out of the realm of "simple" and into the realm of "complicated". You'll need to use a 3D application to animate the paper. Have fun.

do you have some sort of reference of how you want it to look and animate? you can distort your paper in 2d with Ae's distort effects (including puppet with a lower triangle mesh) or 3d distort effect like freeform.
