AE Basics - A Creative COW series for new users of Adobe After Effects. Having recently completed a training course, Andrew Devis was asked about some more advanced uses for the repeater tool when working with shape layers in After Effects. Andrew has produced 2 'Extra' tutorials to go with his earlier tutorial on the repeater. In this first 'Extra' tutorial, he shows how to create a simple man with shapes, repeat him across screen and then down screen with a couple of repeating options to create different looks and then how to scale the whole animation on the screen to give space for additional motion graphics work. In the next tutorial, he will show how to create shapes from text, how to rotate that shape into a circle and then how to move the circle into a line and how to create other very interesting looks with the use of the repeater tool.
