I have a problem with a new Template I'm working on right now.
I need to find a solution for some stroke effects I generated from an textlayer.
To do all this by hand for several texts gets a bit frustrating, so I thought you guys could help me out.
See the design:
I have a textlayer. From there I created mask from textlayer/or shape from textlayer. Both works, but the way with the shape layer offers more possibilities to create more powerful strokes, with more detailed design.
With the mask layer I have to use the Stroke effect, to reproduce the stoke from the created mask.
The created strokes now need to react to the textlayer.
If I need to change the text, the strokes should autoupdate.
Perhaps some of you could help out.
thanks for the help
It's not possible and that is that. If you realyl need this functionality that often, you should consider creating a script for it.
That's what I don't want to hear
I expected something like that..damn.
But I came up with bit of a solution. Still some work, but I think that's way faster then producing the strokes everytime over and over again.
I created an shape layer with the stroke effects in which I linked the path to the created masks from the textlayer.
If I now write a new text, i just need to replace the path of the linked mask and the other instances will update the shapes of the text.
