Touching Typography - Case 1: Noise Grid - part 1 of 2 For Beginners & Intermediate


In this new tutorial series we are going to explore certain ways of animating text using Touchdesigner. Where our multiple tutorial series 'Kinetic Typography' focuses on building an actual text tool for iterating typographic animations quickly, this series is more focused on examples from the field. Unfortunately, a lot of these typographic animations are pre baked. We're rebuilding the animation in Touchdesigner and will add a real-time element to it. This is what we would like to call: 'Touching' it!

In this first tutorial we are going the explore a random scaling noise animation what you often see in the works of designers like 'DIA Studio' and 'Studio Dumbar'.

We would like to thank Paketa12 for a lot of insight in working with TOPs. An earlier noise grid animation was fully operating using CHOPS. This was however difficult to make a tutorial out of it without losing your mind.
