Q. What is ‘Text Animation’?


Sometimes the style of text is not enough to capture the attention of the viewer, so just like everything else we bring motions to the texts too in order to make them more appealing and retaining.


Kinetic Typography is the name usually used to represent text animation as it is the technical name for the moving text.

Q. What is ‘Track Matte’ in After Effects?


When you want one layer to show through holes defined by another layer, set up a track matte. The underlying layer (the fill layer) gets its transparency values from the values of certain channels in the track matte layer—either it's an alpha channel or the luminance of its pixels.


For example, you can use a text layer as a track matte for a video layer to allow the video to only show through the shapes defined by the text characters.

Q. What is ‘Matte Choker Effect’ in After Effects?


The Matte Choker effect repeats a sequence of choking and spreading the matte to fill undesired holes (transparent areas) in opaque regions. The repetition is necessary because the entire matte must be choked and spread; the spreading fills the hole, but the edges of the matte must be choked back to preserve the matte shape.

The process of choking and spreading occurs in two stages, each with its own set of identical controls. Typically, stage two does the opposite of stage one. After a specified number of back-and-forth adjustments (which Matte Choker handles automatically), the hole is filled.
