Animated Handwriting Techniques

Why Animate?

Adding an animation will help your media stand out if you’re using it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. In a presentation it can be more engaging and in a production can really draw the eye.

What’s in the Video?

There’s a few videos covering a handwriting technique so I’ve tried to go a little further. Firstly I’ll use a single path mask to reveal the text then using a similar technique I split it up into each letter. Finally using a cross between both techniques, and another effect, create a spooky Halloween effect.
