This is the last in my short series of text animation tutorials for Adobe After Effects. In this video I show you how to use the Skew animator to make text seem elastic and cartoonish. I think on it’s own skew can look a bit boring and amateurish but used with the other effects I’ve shown you it looks really cool and stylish. Leave a comment to let me know what you think or if you’ve have a go hop over to my YouTube page and post it up as a video response!
This is just a sort tutorial to add a little more animation to the text we have so far. On their own the effects might look a little drab and simple but all together I think they make the text more awesome like and interesting to look at. OK it’s not dancing the fandango, but that would distract form your title sequence. It adds just enough animation to draw your eye to the text with out stealing the show. Check it out and don’t forget to tell me what you think!
Continuing on from the opacity effect I showed you yesterday. In this tutorial I show you how to add the Scale animator to your text to make it pop out, or sit back, into your composition. If you haven’t seen them I’d recommend going to see the previous two blogs to watch the series from the start. This is a very simple effect and when used together with the other animation effects I’m going to show you, they look awesome and stylish!
Hey so here is my tutorial about adding a gradient effect to your text in Adobe After Effects CS4, it should also work in CS3, 7.0 and other versions of After Effects because it is a standard preset effect in After Effects. This is the first of a series of simple text effects for After Effects I will be doing. Hope you find this useful!
