New Tutorial: Dynamic Audio Waveform Visualization With Trapcode Form

Beautiful Audio Waveform Visualization With Trapcode Form

Music is all around us. Whether it be as part of a creative or corporate project, you’ll ultimately have to end up animating something to music in your career as a motion designer. Learning how to create an audio waveform visualization will set you apart from the rest of the crowd and give more voice to the music your piece.

In this spicy new tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a flowing particle system which will react to specific frequencies of sound. A few things you should know first:

  1. We will be using Trapcode Form
  2. Don’t have Trapcode Form? No problem! Download a trial version for free here!
  3. We will cover the use of multiple 3d cameras
  4. Should work in any version of After Effects CS4+

Also, please feel free to check out Dan Begg’s music on Soundcloud if you’re looking for some inspirational music to animate to.

As always, if you have any ideas for new tutorials, feel free to drop me a note.
