So… I spent some more time playing with the CC Ball Action effect to create a logo reveal. I think there is a lot of possibilities with this plug-in and to simplify one step, we even created a quick script that offsets the layers. In this example I used the Card Wipe filter to animate the logo on after the Ball Action animation.
This example does demonstrate that the animating pattern of the “balls” can be any shape to fit your design. Still working on the tutorial, until then!
