Animating Backwards

3-D metamorphosis is a unique effect to clay animation.  It's a lot of fun to animate a blob of clay transforming into a creature.  But what if the end result is to be a detailed, multi-colored character?  How do you make the colors separate out of marbled clay and form exactly the way you want them to?  Try sculpting your final character in all its glorious detail and animate its transformation into a glob.  Reverse the order of frames and the final shot has the glob transforming into the final character.  Check out this new video tutorial for all the details on how to pull off this eye-catching effect.
