How to Create the Effect

In a movie, type the text you want into a text box.
Choose the correct font and size.
Now select Modify and Break Apart.
This turns your text into shapes.
You can not edit the words after you have broken them apart.

Now select the outlining tool (The Outining Button) and choose your outline colour.
Simply click the broken up text to add a outline.

Be warned: The size of your movie will be increased if it contains large amounts of  broken up text.

By using the Modify and Break Apart technique you can create many different and original pieces of text or movies. Morphing text, gradient text, the world is your imagination!
