Part 5

In this part we create the rotating wheels of the baby buggy. They rotate automatically when you move the character. And even the highlights on the spokes fade in and out naturally when the wheels are rotating. You can use this technique to create your own 2D car rigs in After Effects.

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.
