Tutorial: Faking the C4D MoGraph Module in After Effects

By Joey Korenman
After Effects

Ready to get real geeky?

In this tutorial you’ll be spending plenty of time getting acquainted with expressions. You’ll be writing all kinds of code (or copying and pasting if that’s more your style) to try and recreate some of the very powerful functions of the Cinema 4D MoGraph Module.
By the end of this tutorial you’ll have a pretty simple rig that will let you do some of the things MoGraph in Cinema 4D is capable of. You can even extend the functionality of the rig a heck of a lot by adding more and more code, but this video will keep it pretty straightforward. The end result is a cool kaliedescope-esque animation that would be almost impossible to achieve without this rig.
