Special Text Effect In Apple Motion

It’s an easy effect that I created in MOTION while playing with some BLENDING MODES. To create this :

1. Go to library and open GENERATORS.

2. Choose MEMBRANE and add to your TIMELINE.

3. Make a new TEXT and put this TEXT LAYER below MEMBRANE LAYER.

4. Go to the BLENDING MODES of MEMBRANE LAYER and choose STENCIL LUMA MATTE.

5. Add another MEMBRANE LAYER above the previous one and don’t change any of its properties.

6. Put all the LAYERS in one GROUP.

7. Add COLORIZE FILTER to give some color.

8. Add GLOW to give glowing effect.

9. Add HSV FILTER to give different colors. To do so just ANIMATE/KEY-FRAME the HUE PROPERTY.

10. Add GAUSSIAN BLUR to 2nd MEMBRANE LAYER to give SOFT BLUR effect.

11. Add RIPPLE FILTER from DISTORTION to give a WAVY TEXT EFFECT.

You can create the same effect in AFTER EFFECTS also by rendering the MEMBRANE LAYER in MOTIONĀ  and then IMPORTING it to AFTER EFFECTS and then following the above steps.
