Butterfly animation in After Effects

Aetuts+ has a sneak peek of a new After Effects tutorial, Create An Astonishing Butterfly Animation, in their pay library, which you can take for a spin for $9 a month for access to the entire network of tutorials.

Tutorials for creating and animating just one 3D butterfly in AE include the Animating a Butterfly text by Marek Doszla (with expressions and time remapping) and a 2-part video tutorial by J. Shuh at Layers magazine, Animated Butterfly in After Effects.

Update: Harry Frank also did butterflies as a project to teach something about expressions in this free sample tutorial of his inexpensive training set After Effects Expressions.
