Hi guys!

I'm trying to apply a corner pin effect to distort the text layer into a more perspective look, however when i apply the effect on the text layer, the corner pin were placed over the corner of the composition(red circle) but not at the corner of the text layer(green circle), renders the corner pin effect useless. Which part did i miss?

Thanks in advance, have a nice day ☺
William

[William Yao] " Which part did i miss?"

Text layers are Ae's vector based layers and they are basically an element inside a blank layer the size of the composition... so effects work on the layer and this is why you see it at it's dimensions. you can approach this in 2 ways or more:
1. precomp the text layer and in the precomp you should crop it to the text's boundaries
2. use the 3d switch and use the natural perspective of 3d layers with rotating it in 3d space.

Thanks a lot for your informative help! Since i already engaged 3d layer option on the text layer but still not getting a satisfying look, i'll try to your first way of doing it.
Have a nice day =)

Sure glad to help Buddy. yes, the 3d will only allow true perspective so if you want a real corner pin, then cropping the precomp is the way to go. Quick tip: you can use region of interest to crop you precomp

Thanks again! I find out that as soon as i i crop down the text layer to its actual border in a precomp, the perspective looked great with the 3d layer option only, realizing that it was all about the actual size of the text layer composition affecting all the looks.
Glad i found out the answer so quickly with your help, really appreciate it =)
