Yes it is spheres. And i know that everyone knows effect CC Sphere. But I am absolutely sure that such spheres like in this after effects tutorial you didn’t see.
Many of my youtube subscribers know that i really love shape layers. This after effects tutorial is something like a compound of CC Sphere and shapes. I think it is interesting idea. Using this technique you can make really unusual animation in After Effects. Also i think such spheres are very suitable for logos. So watch my tutorial.
By the way exactly in this video I first used “Pucker and Bloat” for shape layer and the result looks really good and interesting. All other attempts to apply this effect in different projects are not so good)
