I'm trying to create an animation showing fabric fibers shrinking. It would basically be perpendicular fibers interwoven at a preset distance apart and then have them "shrink" as if they were subject to being washed in hot water or something like that. If this could be done in quasi-3D that would be even better.

Thanks for any suggestions on this.

3dStroke could be an option
Or Trapcode Particular, using animated paths.
Here's a tutorial that may help;

I just thought of another way- if you have a nice looking image of fibers, you can apply Mesh Warp to simulate the fibers coming closer.
One more option- use Zaxwerks Invigorator: create fiber shapes in Illustrator, import as separate objects, position in Zaxwerks 3d space and animate them getting closer.

actually Zaxwerks serpentine would be perfect for this. It support 3-D fibers to shrink, move, etc, even custom caps on the ends. then you can add custom random expressions to the inertia of the fibers.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll have a look.
