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 part 5 we create the rotating wheels of the baby buggy. They rotate automatically when you move the character. And even the highlights on the spokes fade in and out naturally when the wheels are rotating.
