Conforming multiple shapes/precomp inside one animated shape?? (pics included)
on Apr 24, 2014 at 4:28:39 am

Hello all!
Here is my issue. I have a text layer:


I have multiple animated shapes (the ears and face are separate, ears are animated with rotation and CC Page-Turn for a pricking-up effect)


I want to morph/bend/warp the text layer to fit inside the path of the dog face, sorta like this.


I thought of converting the text to shapes, or precomping it, and using Meshwarp...but I didn't want to have to change the Mesh shape as the dogface animates. I'd love to hear how the pros would go about this! Thank you so much.

You could use this technique.
