Midweek Motivations: Textless, featuring Newton + Sale Info
Textless is a kinetic typography video by Smith & Lee, and truly, it is a lot of fun to watch. It was composited in Adobe After Effects. Tracking was completed with Mocha AE. The 2D physics simulation was created with Motion Boutique Newton for After Effects. Newton happens to be on sale this week. More about that sale below the video.
We featured another video from Smith & Lee earlier this year in our Music Video VFX Roundup – March 2020. It was Powerline Dance – To Be Free. Be sure to check it out!

The 2D Physics Engine For Adobe After Effects
Newton 3 brings realistic physics to After Effects, making your 2D composition layers act like solid objects that interact with each other – just like in the real world. It gives you many ways to control the properties of your objects, including type, density, friction, bounciness, and velocity. You can also change world properties, like gravity. What’s more, Newton 3 allows you to create realistic joints between objects, so you can easily create complex motion. Once you complete your simulation, the animation is recreated in After Effects with standard keyframes, so you can adjust the timing however you choose. Easy, no?
