Would anyone be able to tell me if there is a way (without a plugin) to dynamically connect layers in Ae as if one layer is parented and controls others which are linked?
The best example I can give is the iOS7 messages app. http://www.apple.com/ie/ios/ios7/ (it's the very last video). I'm trying to create a similar control to the way the speech bubbles in the message app bounce off each other as the position is moved.
Can anyone help/ suggest any way this may be achieved without tedious key framing of every layer involved.
Cheers in advance,
Sure, one could write some expressions for it. Otherwise the Newton plug-in can simulate 2D physics.
