In the last part of this three part advanced text animation tutorial, Andrew Devis concludes by showing how to select the already selected text and animate each word separately such that they can be moved into any order and position to create a coherent sentence from the original body of paragraph text. Andrew also shows how to deal with potential animation problems should you accidentally move the word before setting the stop-watch as well as reminding us of the standard options to help finesse our animation.

In the first part of this three part advanced text animation tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to apply and use the 'Dictionary' preset to a paragraph of text and then customise the word selection to match the words we want to use. Andrew shows how to select the words, modify the original text, change the text colour and begin to show what this preset can do as part of a bigger animation where this preset is used to include words which will eventually be individually animated to create a coherent sentence when extracted from the paragraph. In the second tutorial Andrew will show how to create an exclusion group such that the other text can be faded into the background and the final tutorial will show how to animate the selected remaining words into place.

In the second part of this three part advanced text animation tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how once the 'Dictionary' preset has been applied we can then create a separate 'exclusion' group to fade the remaining unselected paragraph text such that the focus remains on the selected text only - all on a single text layer! The final part of this series will show how to select each of the originally selected words such that they can be independently animated to form a coherent sentence.

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
