I recently bought the mac cs5 master suite specifically to get after effects to do wiggly lines using vector paint -- then I find out Adobe removed vector paint.
Is there a way to get the same effect without vector paint? Specifically I'm trying to do stick figure animation with a kind of Red Bull random wiggle effect.
I tried using the wiggle transform in ae but it just moves stuff around -- it doesn't randomize the line shape.
Any advice, pointers much appreciated.
That definitely works for shapes -- you can make the stroke wiggly.
What I would like to do is have a stick figure person or an entire line drawing scene wiggle.
A path can be a shape layer. It doesn't have to be closed. Just start a composition with no footage, select the pen tool with stroke only, and start drawing.
