Hey Cows,

First time posting here, although I've been coming regularly for years for answers to question so thank you in advance for all the great stuff!

Question: I've been asked by a client to animate some text in a video, I would love to really wow them and do something similar to this style----

Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a good tutorial for something similar to this? I know there's a lot going here, tracking, individual letter masks, wiggles, ext but I really love it and want to learn how to do work similar to this.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot :)

I think you would best start with learning shape layers inside & out. IMO, that's how those layers were created, wiggled, grow, shake....

Good place to start would be Andrew Devis tutorials on shapes.
