AE Basics 38: Text Range Selectors Part ONE
  Play Video
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.
