Animating a 'write on' and scribble fill effect using Illustrator files
on Feb 11, 2019 at 6:46:40 pm

Hello!

I've been tasked with recreating the text effects seen here:




Specifically, the text being written on and the fill scribbling in.

I have a substantial amount of text that will need this effect.

I have Illustrator files of the text outline and then a fill layer, all of which are shape paths. This has been provided by an illustrator in the style the client desires.

What I have been doing is tracing each word on a shape layer, generating a stroke, keyframing trim paths and alpha matting over the ai file.

With the fill layer, I made 3x duplications and added a matte choker at different levels, which gives a stop motion like effect.

This is a very time-consuming process, especially for a 3-4 minute video. I was wondering if there was any other method that would save any time, or if this is it?

Thanks!!!
