Is it possible to create a layer (picture or other) that collides with the text making it move as does the water level and the terrain level? For example, create an object with a picture layer and a height map (like an asteroid) that can move characters?
Of course you can already do animating the single character one by one, but could you build an automatic level? (as a collision)

I've tried to figure out a way to do that too.....

I have also tried to mimic an object being magnetic
and attracting text to it.... no luck there either.

But, all in all, it's fun trying....

Never a nuisance.... more a great innovator, amongst the many here......

Choose LAYER > STAND IN LANDSCAPE to make your (text) layer stand in the landscape.

The installer comes with a demo:

Franco How did you make a sphere landscape?

Filip, a year ago

it was the theme of my request, but perhaps I explained myself badly, guilt of my bad english.

Or maybe to have on landscape layer the same properties as picture : plane, cube, sphere cap, sphere, egg, donut, cloth.

vincent, a year ago

Doesn't explain how Franco made a sphere with the properties of a landscape

Filip, a year ago

Franco, in the current version, the landscape layer has no sphere style. Thank you for your request!

Filip, I think Franco used a picture layer using the SPHERE style (1st dropdown) and the AdvancedMaterials\ColourmapDisplacementmapReflectionmap effect.

Michiel, tried it but it doesn't work with the "stand in the landscape" option.
By the looks of his picture he got it working.

Filip, a year ago

No, that requires the landscape layer.

He must have used 5 separate text layers and placed them manually at the right position and rotation.

michiel, a year ago

yes I did as Michiel said, it was just to show what I meant.
Thank you.
