Creating Animation Templates with Motion Canvas

Today I had a bit more fun with Motion Canvas. My plan was to create simple “templates” that can be used for different stuff.

I experimented around and had some trouble as the magic Motion Canvas is doing in the background got in the way. In particular, I did not manage to write a function which would return the code needed inside a scene for given parameters (think: scene props).

But still, I managed to create a configurable animation template for lists (using constant variables as “parameters”/”scene props”.

An example animated using this template is included below.
