Coming Soon: Trapcode Tao #TrapcodeTao

Peder Norrby, aka The Brain of Trapcode, has been posting some Trapcode Tao teasers on Twitter for a couple of months now. Tao creates these lovely path animations in After Effects. If you haven’t seen it, check out these beautiful samples.

“I’ve been longing for this ever since I made 3D Stroke. After developing Mir, I finally have everything in place. 道 means “path” in Chinese and Japanese. It has to do with paths. The animated GIF above shows a ribbon along a path, with the profile being rotated over the length of the path and also rotating over time, combined with seamless looping fractal displacement.” – Peder Norrby
