bending text

Postby beeblebrox on 02/24/2016, 10:30 pm

Hey there. I'm tracking text going down a wall that was shot with a fish eye lens. I know it is easy to bend layers (with geometry/curvature setting ) using 3D trace but I want to simply bend text. There is no setting for that...or am I missing something? I haven't tried using 3D element which I have - that'll be my next step.

Thanks everyone!

I HATE PCs but this was half the cost of a mac tower.

You could apply Optics Compensation. You may need to apply it to a precomp of your text.
