Hello!

Does anyone know how to randomize the path of a shape in AE?

similar to the particle animation in the animal collective clip below







Thank You!!

I can think of a few sollutions:
1. Animating or keyframing masks.
2. Use particular with a custom particle deformed with turbulent displace.
3. cc Mr Mercury, although I've hardly used the effect. As far as I know it has this kind of meta ball effect.

Thanks Anders!

Great feed back for particle deforming, very helpful!... the interactive nature of the particle is what stumped me. seems particle playground is the go.

Thank you for your reply!

particle playground,
everything from bubbles to birds flying is done with the cannon layer. very powerful yet simple to use. includes interaction layers.
