After Effects is a powerful video editing tool that allows you to add a wide range of special effects to your videos. One effect that can add depth and interest to your video is adding perspective to text. To add perspective to text in a live video using After Effects, you'll need to use the 3D functionality and camera tools in the program. Here's a more detailed step-by-step guide:
Import the video into After Effects. Then use the Track Camera feature to create 3D points on the video. This will allow you to track the movement of the camera and add text that moves with it. Generate a camera from the tracking points. This will create a 3D camera that you can use to position and rotate the text in 3D space.
Add text to the scene. You can adjust the font, color, and other properties of the text from the Properties panel.
If your scene has light rays, you can add the same light rays to the text by using the CC Radial Fast Blur effect and increasing the blur amount. You can also animate the center value to get animated light rays.
If you want to block out the light rays, you can use mask effects for the text and adjust the mask shape and softness to control the amount of light that reaches the text.
Add noise overlays and change the blending mode to Overlay to give the scene a more cinematic look. Use the Lumetri color effects to color grade the footage and apply LUTs (look-up tables) to give it a specific color palette.
By following these steps, you can add perspective to text in a live video using After Effects and create a more immersive and visually appealing video.
