Hi everyone,

I was trying to achieve this sort of effect that can be seen at https://vimeo.com/146869349 at around 2:42s
Played a lot with after effects but couldn't get the right look..
Seems to be a directional blur but can't get quite the same effect. could it be that it has a mask? but that would require a lot of work..
if anyone knows or has an idea I would immensely appreciate it!

Kind Regards!
Wilson

I'd guess this was originally done in a 3D app, but you could pull off something similar with a fake 2.5D extrusion in Ae -- set up many stacks of layers for each letter, offset by a single pixel or less in X, Y and Z.

Something like this script could be helpful:

Interesting, I wrote a plugin with similar functionality. It has some bugs I haven't been able to fix so I haven't released it yet. :/

Anyway, you might be able to get away with a few directional blurs, and some masks on the opposite side of the text. You'll probably have to precomp it to do that.

Here's a fun one for you. Duplicate the layer a bunch of times (about 8) and see what happens...

thanks a lot for this! I found another way with trapcode starglow too but not quite the same

You could also try messing around with a long shadow technique and some masking. Probably won't achieve the exact look in the video this way though.
