How to roll a box in After Effects (FREE rig)

Recommended Posts

Hey Mograph,

 

I thought I'd post another one of my long-ass tutorials here. This one is a little more advanced so maybe the mograph crowd will dig it. I talk about animating a box rolling correctly across a surface in After Effects. It's actually tricky because the point of rotation doesn't stay in one spot, so it took some finagling (expressions) to make it work. In the video I show you:

 

• How to animate the cube once the rig is built, using our Animation Principle buddies

• How to recreate the rig from scratch

 

I also give away the rig on the video page in case you just feel like trying it out.

 

I hope you guys get some useful info out of this. I have a few more advanced-ish videos coming out and I'll post those here as well. We're on Day 19 of 30 Days of After Effects if anyone is counting... besides me, I mean.

Great stuff again. Thanks for sharing the expressions & code. Been kind of picking & choosing which of these I watch, but every one I've watched I've learned a little something new.
