For a little more fun...

Today we're going to add some fancy final touches to our tapered stroke rig using some more expression principles. We're going to be building off of all that code that we wrote in the first lesson, so make sure you finish that off first before moving on to this one. These little bells and whistles we're going to add this time will make this rig a super multi functional tapered stroke machine.In this lesson Jake will be using a really great tool for writing expressions in After Effects called Expressionist. Go ahead and grab that here if you're ready to really dive deep into the world of code.
