A Beginner’s Guide To After Effects Text Animators

Nick Greenawalt shows how to get started with text animators in Ae.

Ken Burns isn’t the most intuitive man. You might remember, when he hosted that History Channel show about jazz and hip hop music in America? No one really knew what they were doing back then! But now we have Adobe After Effects with its built-in workflow for animating text and type – surely this will make things easier on us newbies right?

“Nick Greenawalt covers working with Tex Animators in AE using his beginner guide,” says Ken at dinner party conversation over dessert wine (the bottle has been opened). “I’m not sure if you’ve seen it yet or not but I think your words look pretty good.”
