Learn how to animate type using different methods in After Effects, from animation presets to animated cameras, and pick movement that matches the meaning of the words on screen.
(lynda.com jingle) - Hi! My name is Ian Robinson and this is AE Guru animating typography. I want you to come along as we take an in-depth look at animating type inside of After Effects. Many designers get their start in animation with the simple desire to create interesting type animation. Now rather than just focusing on the buttons, we'll focus on the way to create and add meaning to words using advanced animation techniques. Now follow along as we go through the process how to decide exactly which tool is best to create which effect inside After Effects.
