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.

You can check out more After Effects Tutorials on Text Animation on our YouTube Channel.



Q. What is ‘Typography’?


The art of arranging letters and words to make them readable, understandable and visually appealing with the help of certain things like spacing, sizing, shaping etc is known as typography.


There are many facets to the expressive use of typography, and with those come many different techniques to help with a visual aid and graphic design. Spacing and kerning, size-specific spacing, x-height and vertical proportions, character variation, width, weight, and contrast are several techniques that are necessary to be taken into consideration when thinking about the appropriateness of specific typefaces or creating them. When placing two or more differing and/or contrasting fonts together, these techniques come into play for organizational strategies and demanding attractive qualities.

Q. What is ‘Gradient Ramp’ in After Effects?


We’ll be using Gradients in this After Effects tutorial so have a look at what it is: The Gradient Ramp effect creates a colour gradient. You can create linear or radial ramps, and vary the position and colours of the ramp over time. Use the Start Of Ramp and End Of Ramp properties to specify the start and end positions. Use the Ramp Scatter control to disperse the ramp colours and eliminate banding.
