Tools used: Blender 2.8 + Animation Nodes 2.1 (Download here)

    Good morning, Chris Prenninger! Make a video tutorial on how to animate a signature, just like the opening of your video, where you signed it. Hug!

  2. I was wondering if this has been tried on any axis to the normals. My thoughts are an effect that has been seen on Dr Who and The X-Men with something changing from one person to another.
