Hi all,

To make the text effects, any plugins to use?

e.g. 0:26, 0:39

I can manually key all that but just want to save a bit of time.

What plugins?
There isn't anything I saw that couldn't be done with After Effect as it is!

You just have to LEARN how to use After Effects, and there is no plugin that will do that for you. There isn't a creativity plugin, either...

AE has TONS of Text Animation Presets. Once you learn how to use them you have a wide choice to select from. Or you can alter them to fit your needs. But you must learn how to use AE first.

You can benefit from a variety of Animation presets, not just the text ones but a variety of others. Combine, adjust and use layer animation as well. However, as it was pointed in the previous posts, learning the craft is essential. You can find a large number of tutorials on the net. Also, you can find many examples of great type animations that you can try to replicate once you build basics skills.
