I needed to rig the rolling square easily the other day. So I wrote quick expressions based on the great tutorial called Rollin’ and Riggin’ a Cube by School of Motion. And I decided to make my own preset and share it for free. So if you’re interested in my GIF above, download the preset and play around with it now!
Copy the preset you downloaded and paste it to the “Presets Folder” located in the “Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CC\Support Files (Windows)” or “Applications/Adobe After Effects CC (Mac OS)” folder.
If you want to know more about presets, check the After Effects Help.
[Quick Set Up]
First of all, you need to create a new shape layer. Then, with the shape layer selected, apply the Rolling Polygon Preset. You can rig the polygon with the rotation property.
You can also change some parameters in the Effect Controls Panel.
Please don’t expect much of the preset. It’s my crappy freebie stuff. But don’t hesitate to give me a feedback. I want to know your impression about the preset.
I’d really appreciate it if you could spread my free preset. And I’m very glad if you follow me/my works on Twitter or on some social networks. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and make something nice with my preset!
