Create a shattered text effect using masking, texture, and a displacement map in this video.
- [Instructor] In this movie,…I'm going to show you how we can create this shattered text…effect combining a piece of type…with an image of broken glass.…So here is our starting point.…I have a color fill layer…on top of which we have our shattered glass image…on top of which we have our type,…and then I also have currently turned off…a layer of texture.…So the first thing I want to do is rotate my type.…Command or Control + T…to put a transformation rectangle around that…and then I'm just going to spin that around somewhat.…
The next thing is I want to clip my type…to my shattered glass,…and I only want it to show up where there are…shards of glass.…So it's a bit difficult to tell with this image,…but there are spaces between those shards of glass.…I have made an alpha channel that selects those,…and I'm now going to use that to mask that layer.…So that, when I then come and turn on my text layer,…I can now clip it to the layer beneath.…
I'll hold down my Option or Alt key and click on the line…that separates those two layers,…
