Hi, guys!

I was looking at the Movie Maker title effects and I'd really like to know if there's any way I can put a zoom out effect on a text in AE, similar to the one in Movie Maker. I would also like it to look like it's smashed against a wall at a fast speed (I don't want the actual wall effect, I just want it to stop zooming suddenly like it would've hit a hall).

Thanks in advance!

Yes, that would be very simple to do. Sounds like you are very new to AE, so I would strongly suggest you check out Getting started with After Effects (CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6, & CC). Point #4 links to 2 very good programs for getting started out, if you want to jump right in, check out Andrew Kramer's tutorials, for a fuller more detailed program Andrew Devis.

Thank you very much! I watched a couple of tutorials from Andrew Kramer and I already learnt a lot! Still haven't managed to properly do what I want to, but I'm definitely getting there.

If Stephen's idea isn't exactly what you are trying to accomplish, if you can link us to a video that shows us the effect you are trying to create that would go a long way for us to point you in the right direction.

I would check out this camera shake tutorial. This is very popular to do when the texts "hits the non-visible wall" : http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/camera_shake_with_wiggler/

I agree with John, an example would be very helpful if you can find one.

I would like to do something more simple as the letters should be zoomed from center and there's no need to spin them. Also, in this video, the letters sort of hit each other, I would want them to hit the center of the composition, like an 'invisible wall'.

This is what I have found right now, maybe I can find a better example later.

It says it's a Free After Effects Intro Template. Why not download it and see what they did?

To me the big differeance is that the logo shakes and not the camera. Is that what you are after?
