Dope Motions came out with a pretty sweet tutorial on how to create liquid-looking text in After Effects. No plug-ins are required either. The tutorial runs 17 minutes, which is longer than I’ll typically sit and watch, but it’s always interesting to see how others work in the programs that you also work in.
