Produce and animate creative layer collages easily

Motion Boutique PASTICHE Highlights
Definition: “A pastiche is an artwork that copies the style of another work or that combines various, distinct styles together into one work.”
Fast and robust
Handles hundreds of layers with ease
There’s nothing like this!
Only manipulates Transform of comp layers
Everything produced by Pastiche can be modified by hand.
Create never before seen animation.
What’s New in Pastiche 2?
New distribution method that pushes the layers towards the darkest or the most opaque areas.
Allows a more regular and natural distribution of the layers on the collage.
You can choose between 2 modes: based on alpha or luminance.
You can control the precision of the distribution to fine-tune the regularity of the collage.
You can now set the color (fill, outline, or both) of your shape layers depending on your source!
Apply colors randomly or a predefined color. Create totally incredible animations!
Make your animations loop have never been so simple!
Just set the new Use First Value option in every Transform parameter and let Pastiche 2 do the work for you.
New animation styles!
We added two new spatial interpolation methods:
- This step will force the layers to move along the horizontal and vertical axes
- Elastic will add elasticity to the motion.
You can use any type of layer even if they are animated!
Change colors of shape layers while they are animated. The example was made with Newton 3.
Create complex animation in a few clicks!
PASTICHE needs two things to do its magic:
- A source layer to define the shape of the collage
- and a bunch of layers to be placed inside that shape.
You can choose among various options to customize the look of the collage.
Possibilities are endless!
PASTICHE provides intuitive controllers to fine-tune the position, scale, rotation, and opacity of the collage layers.
If the source layer changes over time, PASTICHE is able to animate the layers so they morph from one collage to another.
Again, many animation parameters are available.
PASTICHE is also a great companion for the Motion Boutique physics engine Newton.
