Tutorial by: Creative Dojo
Creative Dojo was inspired by Hieu Vu’s Instagram and is showing us how to create this fluid soft body animation, solely in after effects! As one of the most senior veterans in the After Effects Tutorial game, we are so excited to see this fresh tutorial from Creative Dojo in 2020!

From the instructor:
In this video, we’ll go over how to simulate a soft body distortion effect in After Effects. This technique can be used to create really nice fluid or liquid type movements. The key to this technique is the CC Smear effect. Made props to Hieu Vu for showing me this technique. Don’t forget, you can rig this effect up with other effects and expressions to streamline the whole elastic animation. Give it a try and let me know what you guys think.
