We have received many requests for info about character animation in After Effects, using FreeForm Pro. Well, we also wanted to let you know that basic character animation is also possible with FreeForm.
Digieffects FreeForm, (bundled with CS5), and FreeForm V2 (CS6+) can both be used for character animation. FreeForm was created by Chris Bobotis, a partner at mettle. It was originally published by digieffects, but the newer version is sold directly through mettle.
For info on character animation, We usually direct people to the tutorials by Dan Gies. He does a great job at explaining things. We’ve reorganized our tutorials sections, making it easier to find the tutorials by software plugin; FreeForm, FreeForm Pro, and ShapeShifter AE. We have also included many more tutorials.
There’s a great basic Character Animation tutorial by Dan Gies, for those of you who want to see how he does it. He created this for the bundled FreeForm for CS5, but it also works with FreeForm V2 for CS6+
You can also check out our FreeForm Pro tutorial section, where you’ll find all of Dan’s more advanced tuts. Thanks Dan, for all your great work. We love it! And many thanks for all the great tutorials using our products.
