    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create this powerful shape layer transition using just one effect and 4 keyframes. I say it’s “powerful” because it can be used in any infographic, you can easily change the the angle of the transition procedurally, you quickly change the colors, and the best part is that you can save it as an animation preset, which allows you to bring it into your project with literally a click of a button. You can use this one preset and get hundreds of different looks and styles. Stick around – you definitely don’t want to miss this episode.
