Close-up book animation
by Romina Power on Sep 25, 2014 at 8:12:26 pm
Have you any idea, how I can achieve this effect? http://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-3952253-stock-footage-different-laye...
I tried with After Effects, but I don’t know how to make so quickly text. And how I can create such transition text?
Also I tried with Cinema 4D (used different textures ) - result was better, but problem with transitions text still remains.
Thanks for any help.

One method, would be to create one giant composition(10240x570.) and fill it full of text, named "Text 1). Create your final comp at normal size and place a texture as the bottom layer. Bring in Text 1 and apply an expression to position, by alt-clicking the position stopwatch:
This expression will just move your text layers in different places, each layer will be random from the next. Change the layer length to 1 second and add opacity keyframes so the layer fades up, then fades down. Now just duplicate the layer 20 to 30 times and offset each layer, by going to Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Sequence Layers. Offset them by the duration of your dissolve. Make the layers, 3D, add a camera and do a slow move and you are done.
