Anthony Possobon has created a script for animating highly detailed hair. Using puppet pins and automatically offsetting them with a sine wave, the script can create the look of flowing, waving hair. Anthony explains how the script works and demonstrates his techniques.
The script uses a sine wave to animate the puppet pins in After Effects and automatically offsets them while offering some controls for editing the resulting animation. It’s an easy way to create the animated wave principle. Anthony walks through how he uses the script for hair, demonstrating the techniques used on his example animation “Messy” (Original Artwork by Ilya Kuvshino).
