Random Letter Color and Movement

Postby maxvit99 on 10/28/2015, 12:34 am

Hello, I have some text and I need each letter to be of random vibrant color (red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet, magenta), but there should be no clear pattern to how it repeats (preferably). Also, each letter should move around randomly. I am thinking of something with wiggles, maybe a range selector and a rotation with a position. It is supposed to look like happy playful text, and if this helps, this is the font I am using: Arial Rounded MT Bold.

Last time I tried doing something like this it was only a few letters, so I just used one layer per letter, but here it would be hard to do that.

Thank you,
Max

You need to be more specific. See my reply on the Adobe forum.

Hello, sorry I was not specific enough.
The colors can be any of the ones where you put the circle thing, in the left color selection box of the dialog, in the top, right corner and adjust the slider on the right. The colors do not change over time.
It should move slowly and a little bit. A little overlap is fine. I would like to have some movement similar to the result from the following effects/presets:
1) wiggle - rotation at 1w/s and 1 deg
2) wiggle - position at 1w/s and 5 pix
3) wiggle - scale at 1 w/s, 1% amount, checked width separately, 0% width
4) wiggle - shear at 1 w/s, 2 amount

Thank you,
Max
