Remember the amazing “Textless” short by Gareth Smith & Jenny Lee? Well, here’s Motion Boutique's tutorial that recreates the workflow to achieve this amazing effect where the content of a sign is falling with real physics using Newton.

Tools used

Author Notes

We are going to use Adobe After Effects, Mocha AE to track the sign and Newton3 for the physics simulation. Adobe Illustrator to vectorize the artwork and Adobe Photoshop to clean up the sign using the content-aware tool. That’s a lot of tools for an amazing result. But don’t worry, everything is going to be quite easy to do.
