Font/Word adjustment in Illustrator
on Oct 4, 2007 at 2:33:54 pm

I'm trying to morph a word in to the shape of a footprint. So for instance, the word FOOTWEAR would be in the shape of a footprint instead of it just the normal font. I am assuming this is a Illustrator procedure. I just don't know how to do it. Any help would be great. Thanks.

If you need a movie showing the type morphing to a foot print, this is an After Effects job using SMI Smart Mask Interpolation.

If you need an image showing the steps in between, you do this with the blend tool in Illustrator.

Create a footprint outline in Illustrator. Then type out the word footwear. Make it an outline text for footwear. Choose both and create a mask.

If you want to morph it, in addition to After Effects you can also use Flash. You put the word Footwear in one keyframe, and the foot outline in another and choose the shape tween and morph.

I hope this helps.
