The Knit Sweater Look In Adobe After Effects

via Skillshare


I hope you're ready to get warm and cozy, because this class is gonna get comfy! In this quick class I'll show you how to quickly and easily create this procedurally generated effect in After Effects. Since it's procedural, whatever you plug into it comes out looking like a knit sweater - even animation! We'll use a combination of effects to build the knit pattern, yarn texture, and finishing effects. Plus we'll even cover some basic expressions to make working with this effect very easy.

Even if you're a designer who might not be very familiar with After Effects, or you're just not interested in animation, you can still harness that power of After Effects to apply this effect to still graphics. It's very easy to adjust and customize.

So, grab some hot cocoa, and let's getting knitting!
