Join Ran Ben Avraham for an in-depth discussion in this video Breaking down the steps for the advanced write-on effect, part of After Effects: Animated Write-on Type.
- So, here are the steps you are going to take. First of all, we'll separate the "fancy" word into separate letters. Once we've done that, we can separate each letter to two or more parts, depends on the letter. Then we are going to apply the write-on effect to each and every part we have separated from each letter. Once we're happy with the animation, we'll place each part in the correct sequence to get a flowing seamless animation of the entire word. Our next step will be to add the strokes that seem to write the text, and to finish it all up we'll add the secondary bouncing animation.
Planning a work flow ahead and breaking down the work flow will help us troubleshoot any problems we might encounter further on down the line. During this course, I'm using the 3D Stroke plug-in by Red Giants. To complete this course, you will need to either own the plug-in, or download a trial version of it from the Red Giant website.
