Text animation puts your words into action, and Adobe After Effects has all you need to make great use of kinetic typography. Animate logos, add motion to 3D text, and get efficient with pro presets and templates.
Whether you need a dazzling title sequence or simple roll credits, the text animation tools in After Effects can bring your words to life. Choose from presets or create animations on your own with approachable keyframing features.
Choose which elements to move and what type of action you want. Make a letter jump, float a phrase, or animate a logo — adding motion to placement, opacity, color, and more.
Control the speed of your animations with the Graph Editor. Observe the rate of change and make adjustments to suit your scene.
3D text animation
Add a little more dimension with 3D text layers or presets. You can rotate your animated text 360 degrees and see how your words look in the picture, instead of on it.
Draw a path for your animated text. Create a simple mask path and run words across your scene along any line you choose.
Move more quickly.
Text animation software just got more efficient. Motion Graphics templates help you start strong, and saved presets — provided by Adobe or custom-created — can speed up your process.
