Animation text presets don't seem to apply
on Mar 1, 2011 at 11:42:17 pm

Well,

I'm applying text animation presets via:
animation> browse animation> and browsing in adobe bridge.

This worked fine the first time. But after I tried to delete the initial preset and reapply different presets, nothing seems to happen.

By nothing, I mean I can see the newly applied animation preset layer under text layer but nothing happens to the text I wish to apply the effect to.

I'm wondering if I messed with something while deleting the first presets I used.

I would appreciate some golden advice!

I wouldn't trust Adobe Bridge to do a great job of that. It's fine when used as a gallery of effects, but I'd still apply the presets in AE.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I have two how to books (AE Apprentice by Trish & Chris Meyer/ Adobe Classroom in a Book for CS5) on AE and both books use bridge to open & apply text animation presets.

Again, the path suggested is Animation > Browse Presets

Will you please elaborate on how you would go about applying presets?

See the effects panel when you open AE? There's a twirldown for Presets, and you'll find them there.

But before you do that, I suggest you just make a text layer, duplicate it, and add ANY text animation preset to it. Scrutinize the two layers, and you'll easily see what to delete if you change your mind on any preset.

I've just never had any great luck using Bridge. Maybe your luck will be better.
