Annotated Typography Tutorials?
on Feb 7, 2010 at 1:04:31 pm

Hey all,

I've been trying to find a good tutorial on the common annotated typography effect as seen here





But my googling is being polluted by those kinetic typography tutorials, so I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I know its something to do with pixel tracking but need a tutorial to take be through it, also not sure how to do the letter box animation either.

Thanks

Jason

Look for tutorials on motion tracking. There are 2 types of trackers that come with CS4, a standard point tracker inside AFX and Mocha – a stand-alone planar tracker that sends data to AFX.

At a glance it seems that most of this could be done with a point tracker though there is some Z movement of the camera and hence the attached text. Also there's a bit of roto work required when objects and actors appear matted in front of the text. I know the Cow has basic Motion tracking tutorials to get you started.

One tip, use a null as the tracker target then parent the text to the null for more flexibility.

As well AETUTS has links to many motion tracking tutorials here:
