100 Days of Motion Script: "Outline"


I went back into After Effects for this one, using trim paths and a glimmer of a reflection during the pause.

Whenever I'm stuck on a project, I occasionally reach out to Mathijs from my Mograph Mentor course for questions. This time, I asked if trim paths could work on a closed path or if it only worked with open paths? Apparently you can apply them with both :)

Garner also gave me the wonderful idea to stagger them only by a few keyframes. Originially they were about 15 or so frames apart, and when I put each trim path within two frames, it changed the whole vibe. 

If you're interested in seeing how I did this, feel free to Download the After Effects file here (You'll need After Effects CC 2017 to open).
