View Full Version : Text Animation

06 June 2006, 02:56 AM
I've been wondering for ages of how to create this animated text effect. Well I need the output to be swf file. But if somehow, this effect is done using 3D or After Effect or anything... I would be great if you could share.
I know we can do this by using masking technique, but if anyone has any other less time consuming approach it would be great

There is 2 ways to do it. You can use the effects "Write-on" or "Stroke", after done it is just animate by keyframes.

I think the easiest way would be to animate a mask in After Effects (or similar program). However if you wanted to do it in 3D, you could use a modifier like 3ds max's Slice.
