After Effects expressions tutorial
It’s a very simple solution with which you can create any dancing character animation for any music. At the end of this article, you can download the Template.
After Effects has built-in audio visualization effects, most of the people use this, but can be converted into Keyframe by a few clicks, and there are lots of options here. You can also animate a dancing violinist cow who drums with his leg … Did you ever think of it when you were staring unbelievably on the ceiling in the evenings, and you wondered if a cow could play violin and play with his leg? 🙂 Well, at least this video tutorial can help you make it.
Of course, if you want to animate for some strange reasons not a violinist-drum-dancing cow, you can still use the method presented, it is good for any figure.
The solution is that the Keyframes converted from music combined with the Puppet tool will move your layers for rhythm. Again, we use the great DUIK script now to make it easier to move the points marked with the Puppet tool.
