Download: After Effects Animation Presets Series 01Six animation presets for text and layers
One of the great things about Adobe After Effects 6.5 is the large number of animation presets that can be applied to text layers in your composition. This collection of presets was created by AE Pros and can really improve the quality of moving text. This week we present a collection of text presets that you can add to your Animation Preset Library.
One of the disappointments many users experienced when Adobe introduced animated text in After Effects 6.0 was the confusion surrounding all of animated parameters. Fortunately, the included animation presets allow you to skip over the confusing part and get to the creative part. Once you figure out how the text variables and parameters work, it is very easy to create some amazing moves and save them as a preset of your own.
In this collection of presets, we provide you with two sets of Animated Ins and Animated Outs, as well as two random frenetic presets. Drop In/Out By Word, are as the names imply, two presets that drop your words from the top of the screen to the center, or from the center out of the bottom of the frame. Nervous In fades and scales the text in and then applies a slight wiggle to the characters after they come to their resting spot. Nervous Out is the same process in reverse. Chaos is a preset that flies the characters around the screen until they come to their final resting position, while Dance gives the impression that the characters are moving to some unheard beat.
Here is a look at the presets included in this collection.
