Brush Title Intro Animation in After Effects - No Plugins



Here’s an after effects tutorial on how to create a Brush Stroke ‘Title Intro Animation’ in After Effects without using any plugins.


Opening titles sequences are important not just because of the fact they give credit where it’s due, but also because they’re designed to capture the essence of the TV show or film’s story. The style, music, imagery, typography, and text animation of the opening sequence all work together to create a brilliant fusion between graphic design and film making.


In this tutorial particularly we have used brush stroke techniques for the intro animation which is kind of amazing looking animation especially for YouTube openers, Comic Video Openers or any kind of sketch and paint video openers.


Like always this after effects tutorial is available on YouTube with free access, detailed, simple and easy to follow up guidance.

Q. What are ‘Shape Layers’ in After Effects?


Shape layers contain vector graphics objects called shapes. By default, a shape consists of a path, a stroke, and a fill. Shape layers are not based on footage items. Layers that are not based on footage items are sometimes called synthetic layers. Text layers are also synthetic layers and are also composed of vector graphics objects, so many of the rules and guidelines that apply to text layers also apply to shape layers.


Q. What is ‘Track Matte’ in After Effects?


When you want one layer to show through holes defined by another layer, set up a track matte. The underlying layer (the fill layer) gets its transparency values from the values of certain channels in the track matte layer—either it's an alpha channel or the luminance of its pixels.


For example, you can use a text layer as a track matte for a video layer to allow the video to only show through the shapes defined by the text characters.


Q. What is ‘Turbulence Displace effect’ in After Effects?


The Turbulent Displace effect uses fractal noise to create turbulent distortions in an image. For example, use it to create flowing water, funhouse mirrors, and waving flags.


The type of turbulence used. Turbulent Smoother, Bulge Smoother, and Twist Smoother each perform the same operations as Turbulent, Bulge, and Twist, except that the Smoother options create smoother warps and take longer to render. Vertical Displacement warps the image vertically only. Horizontal Displacement warps the image horizontally only. Cross Displacement warps the image both vertically and horizontally.
