Text Effects

Basic Text gives you quick access to title creation within After Effects. For a greater degree of flexibility, apply it to a solid layer so it remains independent of other image layers. After Effects generates an alpha channel for the text automatically.

After Effects 4.1 introduces the ability to control the stroke and fill of Basic Text (Figure 11.53). Basic Text controls are just that: basic. For serious typesetting, create your text elements in a program like Adobe Illustrator, and import them into After Effects.
