    I have a word cloud image that’s a single layer PNG file. I thought about setting it up in AE with each word in a layer so I could move them into different z positions and do a camera push through.

    Do I need to break the words up in individual layers in Photoshop first? Or am I overthinking it, and there’s a simpler way to do it in AE?

    It looks as if this was done in Wordle – if so, you should have the ability to save the output as a PDF, in which case you can bring it in to AE looking fine.

    Quite right, Joseph. It is Wordle.

    Originally I was simply going to use it as a static image. The the “What if I. . .” thoughts hit, and I made more work for myself.

    I just typed the layers in AE. Easy as pie. I was completely overthinking it.

    Sometimes the easiest way is the best way…
