Winsland Lee – After Effects Cool Trick

For this cool trick, I explored the use of paths and the Trim Paths effect. Basically, I am able to have a visual effect of where it looks like I am drawing or have a light source follow a path like the above video. It is a fairly simple effect that could have many uses. It could be used to outline text, draw shapes or create an animated logo.

I was interested in learning this trick because of the versatility and ease of use. Motion graphics is still something new and I am interested in exploring more into what I can do with it. This was my first step in learning.
