Applying Textures to a 2D Image

Hi, I am very new to motion graphics. In fact, TD is the first software that I am beginning to explore. I am looking for ways to apply a texture to a 2D image. Maybe even filtered noise. I am looking to create a face-melting effect.

All the tutorials I have come across on applying textures are geared towards 3D. They use geometry. Is it possible to apply textures to a 2D image in TD?

Thank you.


you probably want to give the Composite TOP a try :

  • Add an image with a MovieFileIn TOP.
  • Add a Noise TOP.
  • Add a Composite TOP
  • Use the first two (image and noise) as input to the Composite TOP and play with the blend mode on the Composite TOP

hope that helps
