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.
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
