Frequently asked questions.

Can I create animated text with a curve?
Definitely. Add text to your project, select it, and select Curved text from the Edit text menu. Select your preferred text animation option from the Animation menu to automatically animate curved text.
Can I animate text for social media?
Animate text to create content for all your social media channels, including Instagram, Twitter, 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?
Text effects only animate text, and photo animation only animates images on your design. You have unlimited design options for the rest. Try adding layers or transparency to design elements and see how they affect 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 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.
