Add dynamics to your lower thirds. Use the lower thirds provided in the project file, import your own lower third, or design your own. Change the resting location of your lower third, time remap the animation, and utilize native motion blur. Find out more here: http://goo.gl/gJqbh

Say it with Drop Tags. Drop Tags simulates an object being dropped attached to a string. The project file can be customized to make it your own. Four high quality tags are provided as Illustrator files. A tutorial is also included to walk you through the process of changing the following:

- String Thickness - Wrap Thickness - String Color - Tag Text

The tutorial also illustrates how to create your own tag from native AE Tools or import an image to attach to the string. In addition to tags or still images, you can attach any 2d element to the end of the string; such as video footage or text.

The comps are at 2K to give you the most flexibility in adding the Drop Tags to other compositions.

My latest tutorial on AE Tuts +.

Summary:
Using a combination of two scripts, we’ll learn how to apply expressions to individual mask vertices to create fluid and organic motion. This technique has possibilities that extend much further than this single project and hopefully it will demystify many styles that are popular in motion graphics. Let’s get started!

Playing with the Adobe After Effects plugin Newton 2 from http://motionboutique.com/newton

The plugin is really fun to play with and aides in making a style of dynamics that would be tough to pull off in traditional 3D packages or scripts.
