Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting type, part of After Effects CC 2017 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] After Effects is home to…one of the most dynamic and powerful…text tools available for motion graphics.…If you've had previous experience with…type tools in Photoshop,…then you'll feel right at home inside of After Effects.…It builds on that foundation and goes much further with…the range of control and options available to you.…So here in this composition,…I've got four layers of text and a simple shape layer,…and I built and laid all this stuff out…inside of After Effects using the type tool.…So let's deconstruct this.…I'm going to pause right here,…and the first thing I'm going to do is…switch over to my window, work space, text layout.…
And you'll see I have a character panel…and a paragraph panel available to me now.…Let's select this layer three, this word big.…So if you've used Photoshop before,…you'll recognize this character panel.…It's essentially the same thing.…I've got the ability to change out my font.…With this dropdown, I can see all the fonts…that are installed on my system.…I can swap out one font for another.…
