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 ‘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 are ‘Graph Editors’ in After Effects?
The Graph Editor represents property values using a two-dimensional graph, with composition time represented horizontally (from left to right). In layer bar mode, on the other hand, the time graph represents only the horizontal time element, without showing a graphical, vertical representation of changing values.
Two types of graphs are available in the Graph Editor: value graphs, which show property values; and speed graphs, which show rates of change of property values.
For temporal properties, such as Opacity, the Graph Editor defaults to the value graph. For spatial properties, such as Position, the Graph Editor defaults to the speed graph.
