animating 2d text along a wall toward the viewer
on Jul 1, 2014 at 12:34:18 pm

Hope someone can help.
I have some text scrolling along a wall toward the viewer (the sort of thing you see at the stock exchange). That's all working fine, but I've come up against a problem now as I'm trying to get it to bend around a corner. The corner is a gradual curve rather than an abrupt 90 degree bend. I've tried bending the layer but that just doesn't look right. It's live footage but the camera is stationary. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks for that Stephen. I did have a look at bending the layer, but I think that it only bends it from the middle ? (although I could be wrong there), where as what I require is mostly a straight side with a little bit of bend at the far end. Does that make sense?

Bezier Warp might do the trick for you. Or Mesh Warp.

You might want to try this script - it would make it really easy:

I think Bezier mesh is a winner. Not quite as intuitive as I thought AE would be, but it gets the job done.
Many thanks again
Russ

The simplest type of autostereogram consists of horizontally repeating patterns (often separate images) and is known as a wallpaper autostereogram. When viewed with proper convergence, the repeating patterns appear to float above or below the background. The well-known Magic Eye books feature another type of autostereogram called a random dot autostereogram. One such autostereogram is illustrated above right. In this type of autostereogram, every pixel in the image is computed from a pattern strip and a depth map. A hidden 3D scene emerges when the image is viewed with the correct convergence.
