This new motion was inspired by a YouTube channel, “Mathias Lynge”. It shows how to use shape layer to make a stroke animation. There are also some other tutorials I haven’t watched, but most of them have detailed steps and only few minutes. Just spend few minutes and learn a lot of things. 

“plugin trace”: Originally, I should use it to animate ghost’s face. However, I am not familiar with how this tool works. The ghost body and its face go through different directions, so they don’t connect very well. It is still nice to know this new function.
“Wave Wrap”: it is used to make a wave on the shape layer. When it is close to the edge of the motion, it appears with a small size. Then, the ghost body comes out with some distorts. After making ghost in a per-comp, it works better.
