WorkBench’s Joe Clay Shows How to Make a Procedural Liquid Write-On Effect in After Effects

Joe Clay tears apart how he created a neat-looking liquid write-on effect in After Effects, that is a masterclass in process. The effect ends up being procedural and is put together using Ae’s Text Animators and standard effects.

Letters are isolated using Ae’s Text Tools, which allows you to create all kinds of effects for those characters. The tutorial uses Turbulent Displace to drive the write-on effect. “Since we’re also using blurs here, it would be interesting to combine this technique with the technique from our first blobs tutorial” Joe mentions.
