Chapter 15. Fog of Text > Making a Woman Invisible

Making a Woman Invisible

The text wall is complete, so it's finally time to add a mysterious figure: the Woman_Walking.mov file you imported at the start of this project. The walking woman animation is an animated 3D model of a blond woman in a t-shirt and slacks, but viewers never really see her. Instead, they see her outline as it walks through the layers of text in space and pushes the words out of place. What's her secret? The Displacement Map effect that you'll apply to the text layers.

The Displacement Map effect moves the Text Tracks layer's pixels by an amount determined by the color values of the Woman_Walking layer and the Maximum Displacement amounts you specify for the effect. Because the animated woman is surrounded by black, which has no color value, the Text Tracks Master layer is only affected by her figure and its colors.
