I'm here to request your attention and tips for a small issue i have, or let's say, a lack of knowledge.
I actually have a 3D space inside After Effects and there is one thing remaining to do, it's to put some 3D text in it. It is very similar to the Star Wars introduction, nothing special BUT :
I have to be able to modify easily the content : some sentences will be larger than others, some words will have other colours, and so on. My first idea was to create the text inside Photoshop (So I could read the whole thing) and import it as a composition. There's the problem. The text is waaaaaaay to long and I can only save it as .PSB because of its size. As you may now, AAE doesn't use PSB files.
I could eventually make multiple psd files but the purpose here is to make something very editable so the client won't have to open AAE and try to change what he thinks he can. Considering the enormity of the text contents, it would be very user-unfriendly to put it directly in a text layer in AAE (and won't be easy for me either to edit it)
Any ideas ? Your time and tips will be very appreciated. Thanks in advance !
I actually tried Illustrator at the beginning and what I did was copy/paste from photoshop. The result was a HUGE document size and illustrator wouldn't go that big. My mistaker was leaving it like that. I now scaled the text layer to be very small and when imported into AAE, switched on the collapse transformation option. It now works perfectly.
And you are right, the video is long and boring but well, that's what the client wants and pays for. It's for a repeated screening in a museum... nothing very exciting.
Thanks for your time :))
