Modular Animation

Illustration // Motion Design // Frame Animation

Creating a custom animation tool in Adobe Illustrator

Frames (40)

Slider control:

Above: Zig Zag scale slider (0-100%)

For a texture that looks like digital graphite:

︎︎︎ Vector Layer; Blur, Pointillize, and Grain effects create the texture; Scribble style effect creates lines; Opacity setting allows for the textured lines to overlap.

︎︎︎ Animation created by screen recording and frames captured in Photoshop timeline.


Thought about recreating this in AfterEffects with keyframes...

But what I had been experimenting with in Illustrator was already “done”.
