Giving your 2D designs an organic feel can make your animations look much more professional. The most common way to make your design more natural is through a process called secondary animation. In short secondary animation is animation that happens between the start and end keyframe of any given shape movement. The technique uses Newtons laws of motion to visual display inertia.

In the following tutorial by PremiumBeat blogger Evan Abrams we will take a look at how to make a flying liquid blob that utilizes secondary animation to make a visually captivating animation. The video covers:

  • Auto Orienting
  • Shape Layers
  • Keyframes
