Happy Holiday Sweater Template!

Make your own ugly sweater! To celebrate the end of the year, here is the project template you’ve always wanted!

Ugly Sweater Features:

  • Control thread size and width
  • Control Stitching angle
  • Add dis-colorization to the threads

I will admit this project turned out to be more complicated than expected! The trick was combining several different plug-ins together to get the right look. This included CC Thread, displacement mapping, mosaic and more! Ugly sweater stitching typically has two colored strands next to each other so I used half as many samples with the mosaic setting to double the horizontal pixels. Then used a displacement map to distort them at the correct angle.

This project is great for creating other types of fabric and patterns as well, play around with the thread width and shading for many interesting looks!

And as always, happy holidays from the Kramer’s! Let’s take After Effects to the next level!
