I am taking a AE class and have a question for a project. I want to take some text and make it look like it is flowing into the distance up toward the top of the screen. Imagine someting like in Guitar Hero, and I am having problems making the string of text taper. It would be easy in Photoshop, just use transform and warp, however I haven't found anthing like that in AE.
Am I missing something?
I appreciate any help,
You can make the layer 3D and rotate it around the x axis. See "3D layers overview and resources". Or you could distort the layer with something like the Corner Pin effect or one of the other Distort effects.
Also, if you're new to After Effects, please start by going through the resources on this page: "Getting started with After Effects".
Awesome! Thank you. This should help.
