Last night I spent 30 minutes experimenting with only the effects in After Effects’ Stylize category. This is simply the result of applying effects and playing with the parameters and order in the Effects panel.
So here’s your assignment should you choose to accept it. In 30 minutes only, using a single Solid layer and effects in the Stylize category, see what you can create. Keyframing is okay too but avoid using BRAINSTORM. Post your results in the Comments and share what you come up with.
