Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video 3D animation presets, part of After Effects: Kinetic Typography Techniques (2011).
In this movie we're going to have a look at animation presets, and per character 3D. …And how you can use that to animate your text in After Effects. …So we're doing 3D animation in AEP, which is in the 08 3D animation folder, which …is in the Project Files folder. And we're doing 04A, and things that are …here to stay, start project. And in here I have a regular text player. …You'll notice if I switch on my modes that it's not 3D at the moment.…

Now I'm going to go down to my text …presets and into 3D texts. And these are all 3D text animators. …Which will animate my characters in 3D space. …Now if I scroll down, the one that I want to use is this one here. …I want to get my text animating around a circle. …So I'm going to double-click it and that will place it around a circle in After Effects.…
But you'll notice it doesn't really look much like it looped in bridge. …
