Animated Text with Trapcode Tao

Starting with the Arial font I traced each letter with a point light to create a path for the Trapcode Tao plug-in. Each letter and number has it’s own comp, so I could drag the letters into another comp to create words. Duplicating the letters and offsetting them I time-reverse the layers to create a write on and write off effect. Each letter and number has a bit of a twist so they don’t look too flat.

You will need the plug-in Trapcode Tao. You can buy Trapcode Tao from they also offer a free trial of the plug-in.
