In this new video tutorial on After Effects, we will learn how to make a stylish text animation, based on a dynamic and colored cutting of our letters.
We will also see how to create the material on our text, and break the often too clean and flat aspect that digital typography have.

  • Create a photoshop document optimized for an import into After Effects (size, length, format)
  • Animate layers using simple effects, which combined give complex animations
  • Workflow tips to manage a dynamic color palette used in several compositions
  • Combination of simple effects to give a depth to the text and appearance of worn metal
Although the techniques used are simple, I don't recommend this tutorial for beginners, as I don't explain in detail the shortcuts and basic concepts (creating a solid , a composition, etc...).
