After Effects Tutorial VideoFort Jon turns up the heat with some flaming text. Start out by creating a new comp 1920×1080, 24 fps, duration 10 seconds. Create a new text layer and apply a Ramp effect to it. Then apply a Colorama effect to the same text layer. Drop down the Output Cycle in in the Colorama setting and set the Preset Palette to Golden 1. Now apply a Tint effect to the text.
Now apply a Bevel Alpha effect to the text and adjust it so you have some shape to the letters. Finally apply a curves effect and set points from left to right to create a wave. Adjust the point until the text looks like chrome. Now precompose this layer and name it “Text”. Duplicate this layer and apply a Glow effect to it. Adjust the setting until you have the desired look. Apply a liquify effect and stretch out the tops of the text letters. Rename this layer “Glow” Once you have stretched out all the letters keyframe the Distortion Percentage to create some flame like movement. Once you have have finished keyframing the Distortion Percentage, option click the stopwatch and type in the expression “y=wiggle(10,60)”. This will add some extra movement to the flames. Adjust the wiggle values as you please and you are finished! To give a more flame like look, duplicate the Glow layer twice and apply the trapcope form preset “tf_L3_Glow_loop5s_HD”. Adjust the settings for this as need and position it behind your text. Now set its track matte to Alpha and make sure the duplicated glow layer is above it. This should give you a more realistic look to your flaming text! What cool effects videos do you create? Post them in the comments below!
