1. Introduction : Hey, guys. Interest rate from Polly in motion. And welcome to this class in this class. I'm going to show you how easy it is to create a nice looking this Scrabble. If IQ inside of half of way don't use any territory plans we don't use any men were working . We just use built in terms of half perfect to create this type of effort. If you're ready, open your after fix on, Let's get a start. 2. Scribble Overview: okay. And this? Listen, let's talk about it. Scribble effects inside of how perfect. How can we achieve that kind of effect with built in tools off after fix? So some of you you might just think of creating does is cradle effect men, Willy, you're right. You can do it a bad. Not in very efficient. Wait, for example, I can create a scribble riding just vaguely lines and these other staff by creating from shape. For example, if I just simply ah, truce, pain tool and go to a stroke. Ah, make this at three. And also go to fill and choose. And then if I draw a very crazy lines that I don't know what his dad not ah on also pay attention that you don't have to just creating a curvy line like this they're not. They don't have to be smooth like this, and you can create this type of effect. Or if I controlled cheetahs, control Z create like this effect and they're very gear and you can just alter enemy them. If I go to Shea pliers at and term path and in term pad, I can just create an enemy that start like this. For example, if I create a key from here and go to one frame one second sorry, and if I play this you see Dad, I have that kind of effect. But it's not so efficient. It's so a straightforward. It's not looking like ascribing describing in these other staff. So what is deficient way to create this type of effect in ham A list. Lead this on for this. I'm just press control wide grade new Salling and choose the name of a scribble in half of this on good effect increases. And here we have Ah, in here we have an effect called it Scrabble itself and we will apply to add a tour solid. Okay, now just type it scribbled and it is in generate category and simply dragon to your solid. So now you see that matting happened because we don't have anything to generate. Dee's a Scrabble. It's credible. If IQ needs some mask and some path to create that kind of effect sewing here, let's choose, depend tool and draw a line. Maybe like this, Once you draw the line good his kredell in him. We see that in a scribble. We have single mask, all mosque and all mask using mode. If you have more than one mask, you can simply you just choose all mass to involve all of your mask. And this is Scrabble if it But if you have single mask and you want to generated scribble on that single mask, you have to select this one on in mask like your mask one on. Let me toggle their path. Visibility. And now you see that we have this type of effect and it's also animated. Ah, already like this and it's kind of a scribble Scrabble. If IQ you see bad, we can control it to look better, to create a good looking for this soap. And here we have color. We can change the color of it. Why? It is good and we have opacity. We have angle off, are describing effect. And also we have this stroke weight off there went off a stroke on. We have an age option infill type. We can choose center age to create that a scribble effect that lines alongside of this pad . You can change different modes like this outside mode inside ages lift age like this and right age like that. So in here I just want to use Centereach. Andi in h with you can you can simply change the with each age. And you can simply change the ship off the shape of the ages from brown to buff like this projecting you see on in drying ultra you have you can change the drawing point of thes. If I changes, you see that they're changing like this round and matter. So you can also, um, chained the metal limit like this battle we don't want to get at. We don't want to go in depth on that. So and it's stroke options. We have curving AIDS and different our things for this, that if I change these parameters, you see that we can create a very amazing artistic Scrabble effect like this, for example, maybe this will be a good looking and pat overlapping like this. We have space variations and also different other options. In here we have a start and end. We can simply enemy them like this. So if I go in hand and make a key from for this, go one second and zero down lacked issue, see that it's an immediate and also these ages on. These lines are animated already. You don't have to create key frames you don't have to do and other things. Other things. They're just pre animated already. But you can can rule amount off the animation. For example, these vehicle type the fickleness animation is any smooth. You can as like ecstatic. I don't have any animation. You can choose Drum p like this effect. Very nice cartoony effect for this frame by frame all recon use smooth like that so you can ultra chain Teoh Uh, you can also change the animation of speed Vegan Lisa speeding hair. If I choose one, you're Salou down. And if I choose six there is just increasing at their speed And also you have random see to contain this seed And look off your s credible According to just out on amber. Rather generated number like this on encompass it more you have on original one. You can composite them like this. You can reveal do original one If you have anything, it's just generating your original layer into scribble if IQ but in hand just doing original image. So now you've seen that with very easy steps with very just some collects. We can achieve this type of effect, But But if you don't use this scribble effect, just imagine how are deserted. To create this kind of things, you have to create different masks. Do you have to do just control different parameters and these other staff? So in the next listen haven't just create a simple project with this is Kribel effect and we'll a Scrabble a text in after perfect. 3. Text Scribble: Okay. This listen will create a very simple ah project. Actually. Ah, we will create a scribble efecto alongside of a path that is a text that is an actual text , for example era, half a background solid. I'm just creating in you text in here. Ah, let's ride it's crib Scrabble and let's make it larger. Which me? On the title action. Safe to get a little bit center or even use a lying to a line of into center like this. So now we have our takes. Let's sir, just trained to found type fees off this on may be bolt very get. And so the problem is that it scribble effect is work just on mask Leah nor in any other type of layers your script. Our fix is not a mask layer. So what should we do in this situation? It was the trek. Choose your text and go to Leah. And in Leah, we have an option that create mask from text and that is the thinking here. So now you have a new layer that is Damascus. And now you have the new Leah that its mask are from your text and now we have a Now we can just lead the text on. We have our outline in mass mood. So now if I apply this scribble effect to this text, you see that it is work bad just in one letter. So here is the thing. You have to go to a mask and choose all mask and also all mask using more. Once I choose all mass, you see that these bees and altered some some mask or just gone Because there they are in different more. They are in sub strike more. But if you choose when you choose all mask using Moz, it's just applying applying defict on every mask. Ah, which moats and with nan moat mask. So now you have your text. You can just ah, simply, um change is struck with like this and also make a little bit adjustments. Or if you want to create animation, we just create animated the end in hand. So like this Ah, let me change the key for him too easy is, and also this to jumping. Very good. So, like this, you have a very good and very simple animation using this scribble effect. And also let me the let me change of even second, a little slow on maybe three years. Good. And if I know, play this, you have a very good frame by frame looking animation or anything that you call. You see that it's not on a smooth animation has very static and jumpy frame by frame animation. So I also let me go to stroke with, ah, change a little bit spacing like this. And you see that when we change values when we play with these values, we can achieve different looks for or ah, fixed on that is that is the cool thing. And you can also create another Saul in ham hands, maybe lines and maybe create a very crazy looking lines in here and apply this scribble effect. Choose all mask and center ages, maybe a stroke wit, very law like this. Or we could just delete thes skis and have very straightforward line like this stroke with very good and also with me chained cur, venous spacing like this. It's going too crazy now, very good and space variations pat overlapping like this so we can adding me this we can use it as an element tour scene and go to start animated panels in here. Create another key frame for end. Just disappear without, like this. Very good. Let me adjust it later. Bed like death. So maybe you You'll copy this and put it in these US Some cattle. Okay. Now we have a very good lurking. A scribble effect. Hope you guys enjoy from this chart class. And don't forget to check out other polygon motion classes on a scale. Cheer on.
