In 2d i would create a text on layer 1 and put a video on layer 2.Now i choose luma matte for the video so the video plays in the text.
How can i achieve the same effect with Invig. in 3d?
I would like to play the video only on the front side of the text.I layermapped the video to the front side of the whole text.Now of course, every letter shows the same part of the video but that’s not really what i want.
The best for you would be to create your text in IL on a single layer. Once normaly imported into Invigorator your text would be grouped. This way once you apply your movie as a texture it will fill the entire text as if it was one single object.
You can do it at least two ways that I can think of. One would be to put create a material for each letter. Put copies of the movie in smaller precomps, one per letter. The aspect ratio of the precomp needs to be the same as the aspect ratio for the letter to which the movie is applied. Position the movie in the precomp so you get the correct part of it in your letter. Then create a material for each letter and apply.
You could do this using some Illustrator tricks as well, but give this a go.
