How to rotate letters
on Dec 16, 2015 at 2:29:26 am

Hello,

Could someone, please, give me an advice how to rotate text letters alone around their axes, like in this Star Wars trailer, those Force Awakens letters.

Text animators, then enable per character 3D. You may have to adjust the anchor points, but then just rotate y axis.

That was a pretty quick explanation I gave you, if you have more questions, fire away.

Hi,

I can't seem to get this to work. The alignment is off on mine. So the left side rotates before the right side. I'm guessing this is due to anchor points. Can't work out how to change this?

Anyone help as I'm struggling to get this to work. I have followed instructions. I seem to be getting a wave effect of the text rotating. I'm guessing its due to the anchor points. Not sure how to change this?

Thanks. Will try this at work on Monday. I'm still learning after effects so sorry if this is basic stuff. Will this turn letter by letter? This seems to be what I'm doing at the moment but all seems to be off sync (not happening at the same time)

Also guys the only way we can get the effect to happen is use a camera which seems to get the perspective correct on the effect rotating the letters. Otherwise it's out of sync
