012 After Effects Tutorial: Animating a Text Layer


Luisa Winters is an Adobe Master Instructor who has been teaching After Effects for many years. In this video she covers some of the techniques learned in previous tutorials, typing some text and animating its position. While this is not a “Text animation” tutorial, it covers animating the position of a text layer, changing the properties of the text and adding motion blur. Editing a layer and changing the duration of the composition are also covered.
