    Amazing Music Tracks: Offer Code: WORKBENCH10

    This week was kind of a tough one for me, since I ended up being way busier than I expected. So I took on a simpler tutorial I was asked about, but I couldn’t leave it without adding to it. So we start off talking about wood grain and end up building a visualizer effect. We use Red Giant’s Trapcode SoundKeys ( to accomplish this effect, though you can get there in a more difficult route with less customization using our Tutorial 70: Pump up the Jam ( We’d definitely recommend the SoundKeys route.

    There’s a lot of associated expressions involved as well, so instead of listing them all here, I’ve made the project file available.
