Today I learned how to make a squigly line effect that looks like painting with light in After Effects
I have learned a lot today, I like that the finished clip I made was unique because no two people have the same signature, and I used different colours on most of my lines which made it stand out and look different. I had a lot of problems remembering what was meant to come next, so I had to ask for help a lot, but otherwise there wasn’t any big problems. If I could improve my work from today’s lesson, I would extend how long the first particle effect lasts, because it cuts out too early and doesn’t look good, or I would make it fade out instead of just disappearing as it does.
After this main focus, I made something that looked like a neon sign. I made a word with the line tool, then was able to add an effect that follows the path and light it up. Then I duplicated it and played around with the effects to blur the duplicate so that it looked like it was emmitting some light. This is currently an unfinished product, so I maybe able to finish it next lesson.
