Emboss text on white background
by Mark Adamcik on Sep 3, 2010 at 2:58:53 pm
I would like to get the effect of letters embossed on white paper.
I see presets for this in After Effects, but I would like to work in RED.
See the effect over video @ Sept.12 "Corner Bug Preset": http://aefreemart.com/category/preset/page/2/
Simple effect but I can't seem to get it looking right in RED.

I can help you with that.
• create the title with the text tool
• duplicate the video track over which you want to place the text and place this on top
• twirl down the duplicated text to reveal the mask track
• drag the title onto the mask track
• position the title as desired
• click on the main track level of the duplicated video track
• click on the shadow tab
• enable the drop shadow and customize as desired
If you want to send me your email address I can send you a preset. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
