Q. What is an Animated Typography (Kinetic Typography)?

The animation technique of using moving a text in a way that captures the attention of people by setting up a tone. It can be used for entertainment purposes too.

Nowadays Kinetic Typography is being used everywhere like, Websites, Mobile Apps, Explainer Videos, Music Videos, Movies, Posters, Commercials, etc.

Q. What is ‘Time Displacement’ in After Effects?

Time Displacement is one of the many ‘Time Effects’ present in After Effects.

The Time Displacement effect distorts the image by shifting pixels across time, producing a wide variety of effects.

Like the Displacement Map effect, the Time Displacement effect uses a displacement map, but it bases the movement of pixels in the layer on luminance values in the map. Pixels in the layer that correspond to bright areas in the displacement map are replaced by pixels in the same position but at a specified number of seconds forward in time. Likewise, pixels in the layer that correspond to dark areas in the displacement map are replaced by pixels at a specified number of seconds backward in time. You can use any layer as a displacement map, though using a grayscale image lets you more easily see brightness levels and predict how pixels will be displaced.

The Time Displacement effect automatically replaces pixels across time without keyframes or expressions. However, you can animate other properties to vary the effect over time.


Q. What is ‘Turbulent Displace’ in After Effects?

Turbulent Displace is one of the many ‘Distort Effects’ present in After Effects.

The Turbulent Displace effect uses fractal noise to create turbulent distortions in an image. For example, use it to create flowing water, funhouse mirrors, and waving flags. It is also used for creating seamless loops.
