In this tutorial we add elastic deformation in After Effects to a shape layer using a very clever expression that deforms the shapes automatically when we move the layer. As an example, we use a plant whose leaves and branches should swing when we move it. The exciting thing about this expression is that it does not contain one hard-coded deformation, but analyzes the movement of the layer and deforms it accordingly, no matter how you move it.
