Flying Liquid Teardrop Blobs – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Make liquid blobs fly around the frame. I’m sure you’ve seen this before and if you’ve tried particle systems, and just plain drawing it, then you need this lovely solution that uses other paths as guides but still tricks the computer into doing most of the work for you. It’s great.

If you have any questions just let me know in the comments.

    Your tutorials are awesome, thanks so much for your help with AE.. when I get a bit of money i’ll be sure to purchase some of your files in order to make a contribution… Was wondering how to generate those shadows in the 3d layer for the “Flying Liquid Teardrop Blobs”

      Hey Russ. Those shadows are a precomp of the content that’s just been moved in 3d, given a blur and a fill, and made a little transparent. Not much to it. Enjoy.
