Lesson 5. Working with Text and Numbers

Lesson 5. Working with Text and Numbers

Even text and numbers can add visual excitement with the right design ideas and After Effects features. In this lesson, you'll practice a number of techniques for using blur to simulate the look of smooth, continuous motion in fast-moving text. Then you'll crank up the tempo with random numbers that flash in and out of view in a busy visual staccato.

In this lesson, you'll learn to do the following:

  • Apply, format, and animate the Basic Text effect

  • Apply, format, and animate the Path Text effect

  • Apply, format, and animate the Numbers effect

  • Add Motion Blur to fast-moving layers

  • Apply the Fast Blur effect

  • Edit expressions that you apply

  • Apply the Easy Ease In keyframe assistant

Your next job is to build two text compositions and one numbers composition that you'll render separately as elements for the final composite in a later lesson.

This lesson takes about an hour to complete, not including the time required to render the elements.
