Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Use text animators, part of After Effects CC 2018 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Narrator] In addition to animating a text layer's…conventional transform properties,…we can animate the individual character's within the layer,…by adding any number of text layer animator properties.…Text animators are a unique tool in After Effects…that can help make our motion graphics more dynamic.…In this movie,…we'll see why they are powerful…and how they can open the door…to more dynamic text movement.…So here in this first example,…I've got my animation of text.…It's four layers…and really the only animation I've got going…is the scaling of this last word.…Everything else is just popping on.…
So we have a popping on,…popping on.…The shape layer's animated, of course, but text-wise,…the scaling is the only thing happening here.…So rather than having this first line,…Here is a, pop on altogether,…let's go ahead and use text animators…to bring on that text more dynamically.…So let's go ahead and select layer two.…And when we twirl that down,…you'll see here we have text and over to the right…we have animate and this little icon here.…
