I'm complety new to Adobe After Effects but I'm trying to copy something from a YouTube movie. In this movie a road/ track appears slowly as an overlay at the front of the video. Next to this line (the road) appears some town names and distance from the start. Also a North arrow appears.
The line starts white but after a few seconds it becomes bleu from the start till the end.
Almost at the end:
I want to copy this track. But I doesn't know exactly how to do it. Also because it gets fatter over time. Do I have to select this track using the pen tool or with the roto brush tool or am I complety wrong. If I select the track also the line at the road is added to the selection. I can't read the white and blue letters very well.
Could somebody help me with a (beginners) step-by-step plan for copying this?
Or would somebody copy this for me?
(Ps Sorry for the grammar but English is not my motherlanguage)
I suggest you look up any "write on logo" tutorial or similar. Nothing magical. Just basic mask paths or shape layer paths being revealed and the nsome text layers being faded in.
