This tutorial for the scrambled text is not my own idea.
It was a tut for PSP and I just want to explain how to do it in PI.

Step 1
Open a new canvas 550 X 110 - transparent.
Choose a font which is wide enough to make a border around it.
Size - any between 20-60 - colour black - 3D round.
Write your text - duplicate - split text.

split text

Activate the first text - change from 3D round to pipe - width 2.
Split this text too and while it is active, move it to the bottom of the Layer Manager.

Step 2
Now click on the first letter (W) - r/click - convert from path to image.
Go to Edit - Fill - fill the letter with a colour of your choice.
Repeat with all the other letters.

Step 3
Now merge each letter and pipe as single object.


Duplicate about 6 or 7 times.
In the Layer Manager, close all eyes except the first lot of letters.
Now move them together, rotate them, move up or down, anything you like.


When happy with the look, merge as single object.

Step 4
Activate the next lot of letters.
Repeat with moving them together, but not as close.
Make sure you leave one text as is.
I have seven frames.

7 frames

Activate all the text and crop the excess away.

Step 5
Save as ufo.

Step 6
Now animate your text.


Hope you could follow my tut easily.
