How To Add Noisy Texture To Designs In Adobe After Effects

So here I have my design that I made in Illustrator and I’ve broken it up into a bunch of different layers. For this example I’m going to add texture to the main body of the raft. Start by making a new solid (Layer > New > Solid) and I’ll make sure it’s comp sized. Then draw a mask where you want the texture to be and feather it 25-50 pixels. Change the blending mode to Dissolve. Apply a Fill (Effect > Generate > Fill) and choose your desired color. Now duplicate the layer you want to apply the texture too and drag the duplicate just above the solid that you’ve masked. Set the track matte of the solid to Alpha Matte so that it’s matted to the layer you want the texture on. To fine tune the look you can adjust the opacity and mask feather. And that’s it!

You can really push this technique by adding it to multiple elements in your designs. Also think about using it as both shadows and highlights to get some great results.
