## Here's how to use Polar Coordinates in After Effects.

GMunk is the man. He creates some incredible work, and in this After Effects lesson we're going to re-create some of the effects from one of his pieces, Ora Prophecy. Check out the resources tab to take a peek at that before you get started.
You'll learn how to use the lesser known Polar Coordinates effect, which has a bit of a strange sounding name, but once you see what this effect does you'll see why it's perfect for what we're building in this lesson. You'll also be doing a bunch of animating, use a couple of expressions, and start to think like a compositor to break down exactly what's going on in the original GMunk piece. By the end of this lesson you'll have a ton of new tricks in your bag.
