Applying the Filters/Posterize effect to a plasma using a bright colourful texture gives a nice psychedelic effect.

To see how it works, select layer 4 and press <F9>. The colours are taken from Cartoonmap_Bright2.png. It's big fun experimenting with other textures!

The text is using the new Text\TwistedText effect. The FX FLIP LETTER POSITIONS prop is important because at those positions in the text, the letters are rotated 90 degrees. This works best when a new word starts. When using the text YOURTITLEGOESHERE, the positions are (4,9,13).

And yes, the text is VERY difficult to read, but that is part of the fun!

Fantastic, thank you Michiel!

Rorysee, a FX FLIP LETTER POSITIONS value of (20,0,0) means that your text is flipped 90 degrees after the 20th letter.
