Text Animations

Postby Itsuki Minami » Wed Apr 17, 2013 5:10 am

Hey guys!

I'm new to the forum so I hope I posted this in the correct place.

Getting to the point I was hoping if someone can tell me how to replicate the text animations used at the beginning of this video

Im guessing that you fade each individual letter, but surely there must be an easier way D:

I use Sony Vegas Pro 12 if that helps

That's probably the easiest way if you only have a small amount of text.
I don't believe Vegas offers any complex text animation options, but I could be wrong.
After Effects does have a powerful text animation engine which could do this for you, but if there isn't a standard preset already designed for this particular effect (and there may or may not already be one), then it could be fairly complex to create it. And then you could have already done it manually.

That would probably be the best way to do it in vegas though I'm not sure if pro 12 gives any extra transitional effects from pro 8 that lets you do that.
If you used After effects there are certain effects which let you do it in 1 go.
