I’m trying to create an animation like the one shown in this AE turorial: https://youtu.be/wPFdak9dYbE?t=13s
Of course I could achieve this via brute force: Create every element separately and animate each. But I’m trying to figure a simpler, repeatable and reusable method.
Array Modifier - but this breaks down when trying to apply an action to each of the elements. While the elements are rotated correctly, they share the same rotation data as the original so they don’t follow the circle geometry when animated.
Duplicate on Vertices - I can get all elements to scale together in different ways by moving the origin point of the original. But I can’t animate their position to burst from the circle nor can I access each element (so no offsetting).
Perhaps a plug-in is what I need. I was looking at Atom’s plug-ins, but they seem to be unavailable until he re-releases them. Otherwise, would the new MotionTools do this easily?
Love to hear any ideas. Thanks,
