Tutorial: Using Stop Motion Animation with After Effects

By Joey Korenman
After Effects

Here's how to create a mixed media stop motion piece.

Welcome to the final installment of our 30 Days of After Effects series! In this lesson we're going to check out how you can combine totally different animation techniques to make a mixed media masterpiece. You’ll get a little peak into the world of Dragon Frame, and then we’ll combine an element I shot with a comp I created in After Effects. We’ll tie the 2 together, add some synthetic motion blur, and be on our merry way. We want to give one more quick shout-out to the Ringling College of Art and Design who sponsored the 30 Days of After Effects series. You can find out more about their awesome Motion Design Department in the resources tab.
