Using After Effects CS5.
I tried Googling this, thinking there would be plenty of tutorials/plugins to do this, but I couldn't find anything that would suit my particular needs.
I am creating an opening title. I have some Headline text that I created in Illustrator.
I want the text to speed into the shot and SKID to a complete stop. In an exaggerated cartoony (Tex Avery/Warner Brothers Tiny Toons?) mode -- adding skid marks and/or tire smoke burn would be an added plus.
If importing the text from Illustrator is a problem, I could of course create the text directly in After Effects.
Does anyone know of any tutorials or plugins that will help me do this.
The movement is basically a key framed motion move - 'Position' (X, Y)
...then some Warping and Slant keyframes applied where you need them to animate the text effect of gravity , acceleration and decceleration.
I'd start with any of the slide in text presets and add an animator for skew.
