Animating Shape Layer Paths

    My weekly After Effects Tips newsletter! 🔥

    In this video I’m breaking down 3 of my favorite After Effects tips. I sent these out early (with some more detail) in my weekly newsletter, so check that out if you like gettin spicy with AE.

    We go over a tip from Tony Babel on how to animated better with shape layer paths using round corners. Get faster previews and playback with preview shortcuts. And easily debug your expressions with text layer previews.

    Hope you find it useful! Let me know what you think of this new format in the comments.
