Using Type Animators to Create Kinetic Typography Animations in After Effects CC

Animating a bunch of letters one letter at a time? No way! In After Effects CC, you can use type animators to animate properties like position, rotation, opacity, and more, and then animate only the offset to run the animation through a full word. This technique can also be applied to words, lines, or paragraphs,

Using type animators is a great way to create create kinetic typography animations quickly and easily. The great part about this workflow is that you can continue to add additional properties to the type animator, and you only have to worry about the one set of keyframes! Type animators can also be used in 3D space, where you can animate X,Y, and Z position or rotation, so the possibilities are endless!
