Frequently asked questions.

Can I create animated text with a curve?
Definitely. Add text to your project, select the text, and then choose the Curved text option from the Edit text menu. Then use the Animation menu and select your favorite text animation option — it will automatically animate your curved text.
Can I animate text for social media?
Animate text to create content for all your social media channels, including Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Pinterest, and more. Easily duplicate a design to share across all your accounts by duplicating and resizing a design or using the multiple page feature.
How do I use text animation with other design elements?
The animation tool only animates what you specify — so text effects will only animate the text, and photo animation will only impact the images on your design. That being said, you have unlimited options with how you make the rest of your design. Explore using layers or add transparency when you use different design elements and see how it interacts with the text animation.
Does the size or quality change after adding animation text to the designs?
The size or quality won’t change, but the type of file will. If you start with an image and add text animation to it, you will need to download your final design as an MP4 video file in order to preserve the animation. If you want to then share your animation as a GIF, you can use our free MP4 to GIF converter to switch file types in seconds.
