Lesson Info

Applying Text Animation Presets

Welcome to this new section of the After effects course in this section, I'm going to highlight a number of effects that I like using and basically trying to give you the know how on how to apply effects and how to adjust them once you have been have them applied. So first in this video there are a number of character and text effects presets that you can apply to your text which makes it super easy to animate your text doing this individually with thousands of different layers, twirling them out and on with key frames that would take hours upon hours to do luckily there's some presets to do it quickly. Those are under your Effects and presets panel and under animation presets under that option go under the text effects and you can see that there's a number of text effects. So let me actually just turn this layer off, create a new text layer. Yes I do. Yes, we want to learn new effects. Let's just align it to the center, awesome. So back in our effects and presets, you have a number of...

folders under the text folder to apply any of these effects, just take one of them. So let's go under three d text, do three D line zoom in and apply it to your layer. Now I will note that it will apply where your time indicator is. So usually they have key frames that are automatically applied once you drop them on the layer. So if I want them to apply at the very beginning, put your time indicator at the start. If I want them to start at one second put your time indicator at one second. Now place this effect on and now if we scrub through this you can see what happens. So let's just play through it quick little three D line zoom in. This one is pretty simple. If I select this layer and press you on my keyboard you can see the key frames that are set up. Now you don't necessarily have to understand what all of these key frames do but you want to know how you can adjust it if you wanted to go later or earlier you can just select these key frames, drag them to the left or right. If you wanted to go slower just drag them further apart or closer together to make it faster. Now what do you do if you want to get rid of a text effect? Well sometimes a text effect will pop up in your effects controls and you can delete it if not, what you want to do is delete these key frames first. Though I'm just going to close our yes I do text and then open it up so you can see that we've added two animators and remember how we were doing the shape effects. Where there was this little add button. Well in the text layers you have this animate button so you can add these different animations to text and those are these animators. So if I click animate, you can see there's a line spacing animation, there's a blur, there's a character offset all kinds of different things. So to get rid of this text I have applied or this effect I've applied just select the animators and delete. So now our text is sort of back to normal and we can add another one. So you have your anime in, you have your anime out. These are fade ons and fades off basically or some way of appearing or disappearing your text. And then some of these are more just styles to text that's already on your screen. So for example under fill and stroke. If we take something like flick or green apply it you'll see that it takes each letter and it has this like flickering effect to a stroke that has been added. So to undo that I'm just going to press undo wiggly stroke with. Take that another way to sort of add style to your text. I'm at half resolution so it's a little kind of lower quality but now I'm at full so these are just things that you can do to quickly animate your text, you know, I can't go through all of them because it would take too long. But if you have questions about a specific one please let me know. But basically when you add one of these. So let's just take one more, let's take an anime out, do slide off right by character and this is a good one to look at because see what happens is it slides off each character. But what happens is it doesn't slide off the entire way. So sometimes we actually have to go into our animation and see what's happening. So let's go into our animator and you see under animator one we have the range selector and the position under range selector. We have the start percentage that's being animated. What we really want to adjust is the position of the this animation. So this position here is where they end. So let me zoom out just a little bit so you can see 25%. So if I take this exposition and drag to the right you can see that now everything moves off the full frame so it moves it a little bit further. Let me undo that go to the start. So you see that this text is just moving a little bit, there's the stopping point but if I take the position and drag it to the right a little bit more with enough space to make sure that all the text flies off the screen. That's good. So you can see that there's different things that you'll have to do when you apply these effects. Sometimes it's just changing the speed of these effects when it comes on when it comes off. Other times you actually have to go in and play around with the individual settings and that's why I say play around with these. If you have any questions about a specific one, please let me know. Awesome. Thanks so much for watching. And in the next lesson we'll move on to another one of my favorite effects.
