    Question Text Effect

    Hi everyone!

    I'm trying to work on a text effect I have in mind but can't quite know how to do it.

    I want, at the end of my movie, to have text that is coming out of sand (I have found a sand picture on the net) and that has that grainy effect coming out from the letters (as if the sand was swiping away).

    At the end, I would have wanted for the letters to evaporate into grains of sand and go away with the wind (but I beleive it might be more complicated...but if it's do-able...

    Thanks for your kind help!
    P.S. Sorry if I may have some problems expressing myself in English...I'm French so sometimes I might have some difficulties but I try my best!

    Sounds more like a job for After Effects.

    Yeh it's not easy it's kind off annoying we had to morph letters in a flash animation make one word fly around and say something else. All i could say is if you're not keen on trying it get try get away with something simple but nice.
    And yer good job archie hahahaha

    What you really want is Trapcode's Text To Sand feature from Trapcode Form.

    As cool as that is, it's still $200, possibly out of the price range of amateur users, so here's two other similar effects you can do without that plug-in:

    Using AE's built-in Particle Playground to have a similar effect:


    Here's a tutorial so simulate sand rushing over your text instead:
