Dynamic Animated Background – After Effects Tutorial

In this After Effects motion graphic tutorial we are going to be taking a look at how to make an Animated Background with the Time Displacement function coupled with the motion tile and mosaic effects in After Effects 2018. This is used to create a background video loop animation. The time displacement feature helps create a dynamic motion and an easy setup to test different shape morphs or movements.
