Tutorial: Using MIDI to Control Animation in After Effects | Part 2

By Joey Korenman
After Effects

In this tutorial we'll finish our MIDI controlled animation in After Effects.

In this video we build on the fundamentals we learned in Part 1 (watch this first if you haven’t already) and learn how to actually TRIGGER animations that begin playing when After Effects detects a MIDI keyframe. The only way to do this is to write an expression that does some fancy tomfoolery. Joey is going to walk you step-by-dorky-step through the process. Make sure you check out the resources tab for everything you'll need to complete this lesson.
