Faking the C4D MoGraph Module in 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.
Make sure you check out the Resources tab for all of the expressions that were used in this lesson.
If you have any questions, click over to the Q&A tab to post them. Other students can answer you, and we'll put our team on the case to try and get you a solution ASAP.
Watch the tutorial for instructions on how to use these!
You need a DOT-MASTER layer at the bottom of your comp, and a MOGRAPH-CTRL null with Expression Sliders for Time Offset and Random Time.

Hi! I´m learning "mograph tutorial", but I have trouble with the first expression: "numDots = thisComp.layer..." Where can I get the code"? many thanks! love
Hi Barbara, you can find the code on the Resource tab which is on the top-left portion of the lesson page.
