We’ve been compositing the animation. Phew! so many layers and many more to go! nice to see it coming together. Plenty of resizing issues to overcome and fine tuning left to do.
Some screen grabs of the liquify effect in AE by putting on an adjustment layer, changing the tool options and setting key positions. I made Ariel whisper (with the warp tool) and I tried out some blinks on Prospero (with the pucker tool) but I felt that it wasn’t actually necessary in the end. Especially since Ariel isn’t capable of blinking. But I will keep in the lip manipulation even though it’s barely visible. It’s such a good tool I’m planning how to apply it in my future puppet animations.
