Part 8

In this part you learn how to create a parallax effect for the 2D scrolling background. Depending on the distance, the different parts of the background move with a different speed. With the iExpressions rig shown in this part, you only need to move one background layer manually and all other elements follow automatically with a speed that depends on their distance.

Overview

In this series we create a highly automated rig to animate 2D characters for cartoons in After Effects. The rig is based on iExpressions and the puppet tool. It features

  • an automated walk cycle,
  • automatically rotating wheels
  • secondary animations
and much more.
