Using Motion Particles and the Puppet Tool – After Effects “integration” tutorial

One of the funnest.. ahem… most fun new features in After Effects CS3 is the Puppet Tool. It makes animation incredibly easy. If you’ve tried to do character animation before.. especially with something like Flash.. you’ll know how hard it can be to create all those keyframes and then add motion tweens and shape tweens and try not to break them down the road and so on and so forth.  But the Puppet Tool makes it much easier – you’re pretty much clicking and dragging to make things happen, and often you can end up with something that looks really cool.

We already have a couple tutorials on using the Puppet Tool, but another one can’t hurt.  This one combines Motion with After Effects to create an interesting result.
