Range selectors in After Effects enable many text animation functions that would be quite complex to achieve through the normal 'stop-watch' approach to animation. Range selectors also give us the ability to animate the numerous functions within the character panel, which at first sight, appear not to be animate-able! In this tutorial, Andrew Devis introduces and explains the concept of range selectors showing how they work and how effects can be added to an existing range selector. Part 2 will show how additional range selectors can be created that work in an entirely different way to the original range selector that has been created.

AE Basics - A Creative COW series for new users of Adobe After Effects. Lesson 12: In this second tutorial on the process of animation in After Effects, Andrew Devis explains how to make your animations look far better through the process of adding the appearance of weight to your assets. This is done through a change to your keyframes called 'easing,' which causes the keyframes to change their default behaviour to give much more realistic and real world animation. As well as showing how to add easing to your animation, Andrew also introduces the graph editor to show how to change the values of eased keyframes.
