Featured in the November issue of 3D Artist Magazine! Chris McFall leads us through this amazing tutorial on how to create a liquid mercury logo animation all within After Effects. He uses mettle's FreeForm Pro plug-in to nail the effect. Chris also shows us many clever uses with built-in Ae filters, as well as his finishing techniques.

It's an unnecessarily complicated achievement of sorts - and one that's possibly a wee bit easier to do in 3D.
