NEW TUTORIAL: Stroke FX



Alright, so decided to record this quick tutorial on using multiple strokes to build high-impact graphics in After Effects. This relatively simple trick is a great way to make your titles pop and stand out. All of the strokes are dynamic so if you change the font or text, the graphics will update automatically. We also use the Vegas effect to add dotted lines and even Vegas lights. This is a lot of versatility in this technique so get creative!

PS: Some might be wondering why I made this a tutorial and the Tron Title was just a short overview… well the answer is simple. Most of the techniques in the Tron project are specific to creating that one look, where as this technique is more generic and can be used in a variety of ways to create many unique graphics.
