Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing and retiming an animation, part of After Effects Guru: Animating Typography.
…So we've already covered how to browse presets and apply those presets to your…project, but what if you want to create an animation that's a little more customized.…Well you can apply multiple presets, and that's…exactly what we're going to do in this video.…So let's jump in.…Now if you're joining me from the previous video, you'll notice we've…got layer one and we have our preset that's already been applied.…Go ahead and click on the Play head.…And scrub through the timeline so you can…see the fade in that we've already created.…Now this is really important.…
I want you to make sure as you're scrubbing the play…head that you move down to around five seconds in the timeline.…Make note of where your play head is.…Now with layer one selected, let's go ahead and browse the…presets one more time to apply another preset to our text.…I'm going to go up under animation and choose browse presets.…Again, it's really important that you have…the Text Layer selected and your current time…indicator set at a specific time where you want your new animation to be applied.…
