I’ve got a paper material which is blank and I want to render text onto the paper (as if someone wrote it by hand).
Currently, my technique is to just create a new texture in photoshop and bake the text into the texture. Obviously this isn’t a good technique because any time I want to create additional instances of text, I would have to create a new texture and if there are a ton of textures, it will eat up video ram.
What’s the best way to render dynamic text onto a blank piece of paper which can move around?
Here are two screenshots of my current implementation:
Paper on table with text
Paper being read:
Note: The paper is slightly curved, so I’d like to avoid a text render component if possible since that causes clipping. Also, I don’t really know how to change the fonts in the text render component (I tried to create a new one and nothing showed up).
Note 2: What if I also wanted to include pictures and diagrams?
