Video with text animation questions from a beginner!
on Jul 29, 2017 at 5:26:53 pm

Hi all,

I'm new to using After Effects and I'm trying to teach myself how to make those simple information text videos which are so popular with news outlets on social media these days (not overly advanced stuff I'm sure!). I had a couple of questions for things I'm currently stuck on, if someone could even direct me to the right tutorial, your help would be extremely appreciated ☺

1) I can't find a preset to make text appear word by word on After Effects as it does in this video:

Does anyone know how this effect was achieved? Are they using different text layers for each word? Or am I missing some easier solution (most likely!)?

2) I'm also trying to learn how to animate background layers with text as seen in the below video:

Does anyone know how this effect was achieved? I can animate text, but I'm just not sure how to make sure the background layer animates with it!

Thanks in advance for your help!
