NEW TUTORIAL: Shatterize

In this tutorial we will be creating a progressive shatter effect using the Pixel Poly plug-in and some simple expressions. This 20 minute tutorial is an expansion to the 3D Ball Dispersion technique for offsetting animated layers, to achieve a unique burn-away look.

PS, the handy SEQUENCER script can be downloaded with the project.
