Procedural Pen Writing up Effect

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew of an approach to procedurally have a pen write up effect like the attached video?

Few thoughts on the experiments I did - Tracing a font or an AI file results in text outlines and ideally it would need to generate a single curve possibly in the center of each Alphabet to even start with the effect, not sure how to go about that. :unsure:

Thanks!

@Librarian thanks for your reply. All single lines fonts are automatically converted to double line in the Font Sop, wondering if im missing something?

Don't use a font then. Use a program like Illustrator to generate hi-res PNG you can supply to the Trace node. Or an Illustrator 8 file with an outlined version of your text.
