Tutorial: Paper Rip Effect in After Effects

This tutorial will show you how to make it appear that a big piece of your footage is being ripped off like a sheet of paper. It tears a top layer and reveals another layer beneath. This tutorial uses Photoshop and After Effects, and deals with alpha channels, track mattes, precomposing, and you need CC Page Turn or a similar page peel plug-in.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I agree, there are so many tutorials out there, it’s great to give back. I’ll make it my new years resolution to do that myself.

    I’ll be sure to send you a link when I get around to using this great effect.

    I read somewhere on your site that you’re a C4D user. I go back to version 6. I wouldn’t put myself up against may of these hard core 3d artists out there, but it helps to augment my AE work.

    Love your tutorials. I’m trying to learn more about C4D since I just started, and your stuff really helps. I was wondering if you could give some insight on how you did the “current_ cubes” video you have up. I really love that one and would love to learn how something like that is done. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge with us.

    Well Mike, you will need though MoGraph module in C4D for that. If you have it, create a Cube primitive and use a cloner object set to Grid. Add and line up your clones so they essentially form a solid Cube that is now composed of many, many cubes. Add a random effector and set the parameter to position, and keyframe the value of the effector to move the cubes outward, which you can do just a little to offset them slightly, or make them explode far away from their origin.

    Check this info here for more info on MoGraph. It’s worth the price, it creates endless possibilities for animation.

    hey love the tutorial, i was just wondering can you make it so that it’s like the title of your movie ripping away leaving the first frame of the film and once all ripped away it starts playing. sorry im new to all this

    thanks

  8. BIGMIKE says:

    Yea Gabe, just precompose the title of the movie with the footage you want to rip away, it will stick together if it’s precomposed together. And just place the layer of beginning of your footage in your timeline, the alpha channel of the paper rip will reveal what’s underneath. Hope that helps.
