Use the offset filter to slice a phrase in two in this video.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'm going to use…the offset filter to create a visual wordplay.…And this is what I'd want to do with it.…Are we overthinking or are we thinking it over.…Returning to my original.…I have a layer of type and I have a colored background.…I'm going to convert my type layer to a small object…so that this is non-destructive.…And then I'll come to the filter menu…to other…and to offset.…
The amount of offset that you apply…is going to depend upon the kind of effect…that you want to achieve…and the size of your canvas.…My canvas is 1800 pixels in height.…So I'm going to offset mine by 450 pixels down.…And that's just the right amount…to split that top word, think, into two.…Just as an alternative, if I were to make this minus 450,…then we would get this result.…Also, interesting.…
I'll go ahead and click OK…and there is the result of applying the offset filter.…
