In this tutorial we are going to make a distortion effect, similar to the intro titles in 'Gamer'. We start of by creating a stylized text in Photoshop, and making some cool distortions with Photoshop filters. After that we go into After Effects to animate the photoshop layers into a sequence, and stylize the sequence to make it look even cooler.
