An in-depth 8 part series to create a highly automated rig to animate 2D characters for cartoons in After Efects. The rig is based on iExpressions 2 and the puppet tool. It features an automated walk cycle, automatically rotating wheels, secondary animations and much more.

In bonus part 8 you learn how to create a parallax effect for the 2D scrolling background.
Depending on the distance, the different parts of the background move with a different speed. With the iExpressions rig shown in this part, you only need to move one background layer manually and all other elements follow automatically with a speed that depends on their distance.
