Text Animation

by Jack Pritchard

Hey! Just so you know, this article is over 2 years old. Some of the information in it might be outdated, so take it with a grain of salt. I'm not saying it's not worth a read, but don't take everything in it as gospel. If you're curious about something, it never hurts to double-check with a more up-to-date source!

I've always wondered how animators achieve the effect of text being animated to look as if it is being written, in real time. Well after accidentally stumbling on a video I found out how to achieve the effect in After Effects.
