Course Description

Ever wanted to add motion to your video titles and text?
Kinetic typography is everywhere nowadays - in films, commercials, music videos, online courses. This 'motion typography' makes your videos look more professional and engaging. While it seems complicated, creating your own kinetic typography videos in Adobe After Effects is quite simple when broken down into the basic animations that are actually happening.
That's what this course is all about - breaking down a complicated motion graphics video, and teaching you how to animate each type of text animation.
What will you be able to do with this course?
  • Use traditional cuts to introduce new words
  • Reveal text with scale and position animation
  • Rotate and flip text onto the screen
  • Revolve text onto the screen (like they do in so many commercials!)
  • Improve animations with motion blur, easy ease, and graph editing
  • Export and upload your videos
  • Much more!
If you've ever wanted to jump right into creating kinetic typography videos, but didn't know how - this is the perfect course for you.
How does this course work?

This course is taught using Adobe After Effects. We used the latest Creative Cloud version of After Effects, but you can use any previous version (CS6 or earlier) because the process is the same. In this course, we dive right into creating kinetic typography in After Effects. While it will be easier to follow along if you have some experience with After Effects, it is not a requirement. If this course goes too quickly or seems too advanced for you, try enrolling in our full Kinetic Typography or Complete Adobe After Effects courses, which are for complete After Effects beginners.
Throughout this course, you will be working on your own kinetic typography project. Each lesson breaks down one scene from the sample video, going over a new technique in revealing text (cut, scale, position, and rotation animations).
What bonuses are included in this course?

Follow along by using the downloadable After Effects project file. This way, you can follow along with everything we do in the course.
Why should you enroll?

You should enroll if you want to quickly learn the basic building blocks of creating advanced and intricate text animations.

I loved this course. The instructors recording/audio was perfect. The speed at which he taught was spot on. He did his best to let you know when he was using keyboard shortcuts.I was originally worried about the courses length. I felt a course this short couldn't possibly contain any meaningful lesson. This isn't the case at all. I learned a ton.But...One thing that annoyed me at first was the lack of resources. This course is taught in a "do what I do" fashion but he doesn't make his audio/images available. I almost refunded the course but decided to look online and find a royalty free audio file and tried to follow along. This allowed me much more flexibility in implementing the lessons being taught but because some of the effects didn't apply to my audio... It caused me to improvise and helped me really solidify the lessons.I'm not sure if that was planned or something he overlooked. Either way, I'm happy with the results.

I should have done this years ago. I'm loving this.

Thank you! I really enjoyed Phil's Course. It was useful and informative. All the best and God Bless

I really enjoyed this. thank You Phil.

Very GOOD - I've already gone through an extensive course on AfterEffects through Udemy just to get an overview (45 courses) plus another Udemy course on using 'Expressions' in AE ---- now I'm looking for exactly what this course is doing for me; teaching me workflow - just finished Section 3 and I love it already: Doug Mattocks

This course requires that you have some prior knowledge of terms. Some steps are completed without mentioning what tools are called that are used.

War im Groen und Ganzen ziehmlich gut.

Thanks so much for teaching this stuff. but I have one question you didn't taught us about your videos which you show us at first how you create that one .(but about other effects which you used over there) I think you should provide other details as well which is showing in your video. Hope you can make another video . how you merge all projects into one . please do some thing I have another inquiries please provide me some more information. I am very keen to learn all this.Thanks

Short & Nice ?Thank You So Much !

A pesar de que no estaba en mi idioma pude seguir todo

First lesson is missing files from the example resources - VERY rough start to the course.

This is a great course for people new to After Effects. I had a lot of fun with the text animations and the variety of which you can animate text. Great stuff!
