Hey everybody, and welcome back to another exciting and informative episode of 7 Minute AE Tutorials, where you learn tips, tricks, and shortcuts in 7 minutes or less. No BS. Just AE.
This tutorial is part 1 in a 2 part series. We’re going to be creating some really cool scribble and stroke text. We’ll go over converting text to masks and shapes, and when to use each method. In this episode, we’ll focus on creating the stroke part of the animation as well as adding in some the shape layer accents. You’ll also learn how to use roughen edges to get a really cool pencil effect. In the next episode, we’ll focus on the scribble part of our animation, so make sure you come back and check out part 2.
