In Audio Reactive 3D Shape Morphing in After Effects, Nancy Eperjesy from mettle, shows us how to use mettle ShapeShifter AE and Trapcode Soundkeys to generate this Audioreactive animation in After Effects. This complex-looking animation is actually quite simple to create using ShapeShifter in combination with basic tools in Ae. The animation uses a Displacement Map created with the shape tools in Ae, which allows for a completely customizable technique.
