Create complex shapes from simple transforms and use expressions in DaVinci Resolve / Fusion for customizable effects.

Creating masks and transforms is easy, getting the shapes and animation patterns you desire for motion graphics can be tricky.

In this tutorial, I am creating a Kaleidoscope effect. A Kaleidoscope is an optical device that creates interesting symmetrical patterns via an assembly of mirrors. With Fusion, you can build your own mirrors with a smart combination of masks and transforms.

This tutorial will help you gain experience in creating custom shapes and transformations and you will see how you can tie tools together through simple expressions. I also touch-base on the concept of ”Domain of Definition” which helps understand how and why certain tools can work beyond the boundary of the visible frame and how you can use this to your advantage.

Last but not least, you get a funny, playful effect and hopefully some new creative ideas for your next projects.
