Rough, vintage, old style looking text animation: After Effects Tutorial

Here I show you in a tutorial how to create a rough text animation in Adobe After Effects CS6.
It’s a rough text animation which has a old style look and feel from old vintage movies.
I applied two effects, the roughen edges and the simple choker effect from the standard After Effects effect library.
You don’t need third party plugins. And to make it wiggling I applied a simple wiggle expression on top of is.

Merge Path Animation with After Effects Tutorial

If you haven’t worked with „Merge Path“ in shape layers, this tutorial is for you. In this tutorial I explain you the functionality of the „Merge Path“ within the shape layers.

To see how it could look like, check out my teaser:
