Best way for a newbie to animate this? (pic insde)
I have just watched a few hours of a beginners tutorial in one sitting, so if I have missed the obvious answer it’s because my brain is melting, sorry.
Anyway, I’m completely new to AE I need to animate the image below so the ribbon wraps itself around the text in the matter of a few seconds.
If it’s possible for a beginner to make the thing wrap around as if it’s actually a loose bit of ribbon swirling around the text that would be ideal (this has to impress someone important).
If not, then some other cheap trick will do, I was thinking of masking out the ribbon and tweening the mask around to make it draw itself, with a floating glow+particles to hide the nasty edge of the mask. But if there is a more After Effects way of making something draw itself that would be spiffing. Ideally though I would like to do the ribbon wrapping thing.
Normally I would just keep watching tuts and get better, but this is one of those annoying circumstances where I have to get this done fairly quickly.
Thanks in advance.
