Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Distressing text with textures, part of After Effects: Kinetic Typography Techniques (2011).
In this movie, we're going to have a look at how we can create a more distressed …looking text. Now, I've created some outlines here from …this original text. here we have the original Helvetica Bold …with some outlines on it to fatten it. Converted that to outlines and added some …shape operators to roughen the text. Now if you want to follow along, we're in …Creative Effects.aep, which you can find in the 05 Creative Effects Folder inside …Project Files. And we're inside text distressed …composition, which is this one here, so open that up.…
What we're going to do is we're going to bring in a source file to further distress this …text that we've created rough outlines for with animators. …So select the Source Files folder, and if you hit Cmd+I, or Ctrl+I on Windows, that …will open up the import file dialog. And you can import from source files, Grunge.psd. …So click on Open. And that will bring in this flattened …Photoshop file. And what I want you to do is just drag it …into the composition and place it on top of your Shape Layer.…
