Back when I was younger and played a lot of videogames I loved having a list of cheat codes next to me. Not so I could cheat my way to victory but just to get more out of the game. It’s always nice to randomly get more money, better weapons or even more health while playing a game you love. And I know… A true player doesn’t cheat. But then again, if you don’t harm anyone and it helps making everything a bit more easier, why wouldn’t you do it. Have you ever cheated in a videogame?
Sometimes I wish I could have some cheat codes for real life purposes. Just a simple code and all traffic would be gone, or my bank account would fill itself with enough money to pay my bills each month so I can travel more. Or maybe a cheat code to get a girlfriend… Oh boy this is getting out of hand.
Let’s talk a bit about today’s video. Today we’re covering expressions in Adobe After Effects. Expressions are kind of the same as cheat codes because they help you make your animations go smoother, faster, better and even crazier. What is your favorite expression that you’ve used so far? Personally, I really love the ‘wiggle’ expression, making my animations more vivid and less harsh.
