After Effects Smooth Transitions – Animation Tutorial pt. 1

In this after effects tutorial, I break down how I created this looping coffee animation. I explore workflow, easing & 2D – 3D transitions (well, fake 3D). I’m planning on doing follow up parts exploring more of the transitions and how they were executed and the thought process behind them. The follow-up parts won’t be next week, but hopefully not too long. This tutorial is suitable for intermediate users. Please leave a comment if you’d like me to explain anything I skimmed over.

I’m uploading new motion design & animation tutorials every Thursday!
