Hello, 3DCG, (not sure if this is the right board to ask, but here goes)I'm a noob in After Effects and I want to create an animation of a 2D picture that looks as if it's being built out of triangles that are all coming together from the sides, kinda like in the gif related. I have a .png of the picture but now I want to vectorise it inside the after effects (I don't want to use Illustrator). I have traced the contours so it has this angular look that I want. Should I just create all the triangles with the pen tool separately and then use expressions and controllers on them to create the animation I want? What is the best way of doing it if I'd have to write this project in JS later?
Research some mosaic stuff.. Maybe play around with "cc card dance"
