In this video tutorial, our designer Margarita shares the steps of morphing complex figures in Adobe After Effects. You don’t need any extra plugins or programs for the animation, just Adobe Illustrator to prepare the assets.

There are three examples of animation workflow. All of them are based on a simple principle: break the animation into steps, and morph a figure to the transitional state. The vector icons presented in the tutorial are taken from the Icons8 library. Learn, enjoy, and get inspired!

Also, welcome to check another video tutorial by Margarita on how to make animated icons in After Effects.
