Shape Shifter – Shape Morphing


    In this After Effects 2018 motion graphic tutorial we are going to be taking a look at how to morph objects in AE 2018 using the Point Follow Null tool in the latest version of Adobe After Effects CC. This shape morph tutorial will showcase a few simple techniques that all combined nicely into a cohesive smooth minimal animation. This animation template can be used as a loading bar animation, looping animating gif, or any other minimal clean animation.

    Editor’s Note:
    The most requested topics on MOBOX Graphics is how to morph objects in after effects, how to morph shapes in after effects, and how to morph text in after effects. This is quite a large topic because you can morph PNG images in after effects or morph shapes in after effects. The technique for both of these things are very very different. In a lot of ways, how to morph an object in after effects (PNG image) is more of a how to reshape objects in after effects. This is because you need to use a tool that allows you to stretch objects in after effects. Reshaping objects in after effects is a very simple process to morph these png images / objects. Morphing shapes on the other hand can use the path tool in after effects to morph shape layers (circle to triangle or square to circle or square to triangle). Simple shape animation in after effects is a critical tool to have when working within AE. Adobe after effects shape animations is the pivotal way to add your creative touch to any project. Please keep this in mind.
    Adobe After Effects 2017 (AE 2017) is a digital visual effects, motion graphics, and compositing application developed by Adobe Systems and used in the post-production process of film making and television production. Among other things, After Effects can be used for keying, tracking, compositing and animation. It also functions as a very basic non-linear editor, audio editor and media transcoder.

    In this After Effects motion graphics video we discuss shape morphing (morph / reshape) in After Effects CC. This shape morph can be used to change shape layers from circles to squares or triangles. This can also be used to help show you how to animate an icon in After Effects that utilizes shape morphing. Lastly, this tutorial will cover how to morph shape layers from Illustrator in After Effects.
