Part 7 & 8: Character Animation in After Effects by Dave Legion
In Part 7, Dave shows us how to create a controller for the whole of the puppet head including all 3D layers and the layer that uses Mettle’s FreeForm. We’ll also see how to create controllers for the puppet’s eyes. In Part 8, he shows how to switch out the voice over with other audio tracks or even other languages using MamoWorld’s Auto Lip Sync. Truly remarkable work.
