I want to create a video with growing curved lines, growing in a similar way to the stalks of a plant, with a pointy end that is at the edge of the growing line.
Could somebody point me in the direction of which elements I'd need to put together for this.
I'm finding all these types of layers quite confusing.
Any advice appreciated
Organic effects require some hefty After Effects chops. Hit Video Copilot to see their vine presets and tutorials. Depending on your tolerance for confusion, you might want to just buy a template from Video Copilot or another supplier. The best products require an additional 3D software package but can often be faked in AE's current 3D engine. I find 3D confusing and difficult to the third power.
