Hi guys, his is my first post here on the forum. I'm editing a trailer and I came across this effect, I managed to figure out how it was partially done. The phantasmagoric opacity effect I can not figure out how to do, not at all.
Can someone help me? Please?
It looks like a combination of tracking animation (2 layers , one for each word, left one with right justification and the right one with left justification so movement will be towards the center; duplicate the setup and have the bottom layer still with the letters in the final position and the outer 2 or 3 letters masked out. The top layers should have tracking animated and a mask that cuts out the inner letters that are visible from the still bottom layers- this will allow you to create the settling in of the outer letters), opacity with animated mask and a lens distortion effect animated on top.
