After Effects Heart beat.jpg
It is time to put the finishing touches on your new heartbeat. After you animate your beat from left to right I think that adding a glow really makes the path look great. You can flavor the glow to taste but if you make color A a bright yellow and color B a bright green you will make a great looking heart beat. You can also add to your animation by adding a lens flare to the leading edge of your heart beat. You will need to add the lens flare with a new solid and change the mode to overlay or soft light. It is up to you and what looks best to you. The flare will need to be animated by hand with key-frames but it does not take long. If your animations is quick enough you will only need aprox. 15 keys. I like to set the flare brightness to about 60% and use the 35mm lens type. This flare is has many applications and uses so I hope you at least enjoyed building this flare and hopefully you can use it in your productions in the future.
