    I really wish I could edit my posts.

    There’s also this excellent old tutorial by Creative Cow legend Aaron Rabinowitz that might help for a more complex animation: https://vimeo.com/38563795

    I still can’t believe you need to render all the frames out! You might want to figure that part out first. It’ll be harder if you need to see all 12+ hours of it (or more if it’s more than one frame per combination). A five frame animation for each combo would be 61 hours long. :/

    There’s no real plugin for that. It’s just precomped footage, often with a scan of a Polaroid transfer on top. It’s probably a silhouette/stencil alpha layer on top in the precomp. The you bring it into you main comp. It looks like most of them were just linked to a null since they seem to move as a group, and then you layer texture on it. It looks nice, and it takes some work, but it’s not an insane undertaking and certainly not something you’d need a plugin to accomplish. You can easily create complex looking effects with duplicated precomps.

    The first looks like it might be able to be done with CC Kaleida, although I think it might just be a displacement of some sort. The second is also possibly a displacement using fractal noise or something similar. It would definitely take some experimentation. But that’s where I’d start.

    Also, if you need them to blur past, I’d just fake it with a few extra layers and some directional blur. 😉 Obviously I got you all the combinations, the rest is up to you!

    I should note that the 23.976fps mistake was corrected. The linked version should be exact without any omissions or repeats. Also, I hope you can use this and charge them like you had to key in all 17K of them by hand. And if you did, I have paypal, haha. 😉

    I’m not sure why you’d have a client that would ever need something like this. But I figured out an easy way to do it. Here are all 17,576 frames. At 24fps it’s 12 hours, 12 minutes, and 7 frames long. I hope you’re not intending to actually render it! It’s hard to check out, but it seems like it’s accurate. I did notice a mistake from using 23.976 instead of a pure 24fps. It starts on aaa, ends on zzz, and at certain points like azz it’ll change to baa (frame 676 By the way).

    So, since I’ve gone to the trouble to figure it out, can you please explain why anyone would ever need this? Haha, I’m dying to know.

    You can download a project file here. I’ll leave it up for a while in my Dropbox.

    I’d split it up into pieces in AI, bring it into AE as a single layer (not a composition) and the create shapes from vector layer. Then hand animate the shapes. Maybe add some extra bounce with Ease and Wizz with curvaceous checked.

    This happens because aerender is a command line program (it doesn’t have a GUI) meant to run in terminal. It takes arguments (file paths for instance) so that it can render compositions in project files. That output (as with many command line programs) is what happens when you run it with no arguments—it shows you the help file.

    If you want to render comps in your render queue in a project on a Mac for example, you’d run something like:
    /Applications/Adobe\ After\ Effects\ CC\ 2015/aerender -project "the/path/to/the/project_file.aep"

    You can also type in the first part up to and including -project and then type a quote and drag the actual aep into the terminal at that point then put a closing quote, hit enter and it should render any compositions in that project that are set to render.
