Animating Writing Text

    After Effects Tutorial – Animating Writing Text

    Hey there! In this video I’m going to show you how you can create the effect of a text being ‘written’. Great for those swirly or handwritten fonts. It’s being done with a simple trim paths and alpha matte effect so you can easily and quickly apply this to your own animations. Enjoy!

    Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you have in the comments! I will do my best to answer as many questions as possible.
