A 3D Text/Model built for animation
The Pencil has been design for easy (manual) tracking with an onscreen control. Behaviors built in to give the pencil extra “energy” in the animation to emulate a real world appearance. Behavior animation can be keyframed to vary its effect.
The Pencil has an Opacity control — while tracking your source in the viewer, it helps to un-hide the background while you’re working with it.
A built in shadow that can be controlled with setting the light direction enhances the 3D relationship with the surface of the image.
An altitude control allows you to “lift” the pencil — the effect is highlighted by the shadowing.
Here’s a demo:
Please read the about section for an Apple Support Community forum tutorial for creating the image effects. (A more detailed tutorial will become available soon.)
