Technology always has been a source of inspiration for artists. Specially when you can use it by your own.
After Effects offers a huge range of possibilities for producers and filmmakers like you. From animating corporate logos, advertising, and even complex animations for films. So, there will be always new features that you don’t know about yet.
As we wanting you to always keep inspired, Audiolander brings you this trick to make anything react to music or any audio!
This trick, is based in converting your audio track in to a keyframes, in other words, audio amplitude. This, will create a new effect rack that captures the audio motion from both audio channels (Left and Right) to assign it to any source. This, will allow you to automate any video, image, text or whatever is in your mind.
First of all, we need an audio track. It can be any audio file, specially a rythmic song. This will allow you to catch richer dynamics than with flatter song to create your audio amplitude.
To find the song that you need, enter Audiolander. There you can find a huge catalogue of more than 20.000 tracks with rythimc categories like Electronic, Ethnic, Funk, Hip-Hop, Latin, and many other genres that you can find.
After importing your song into After Effects, choose and import your video, image or text file. Now, think in the parameter that you want to automate to react to your audio file. Then, you can adjust the dynamics of the audio amplitude by simply editing that track and creating the groove that you need.
After that, you can tune whatever you need to make your master piece work perfect!
