Mike Ridolfi Has a Beginner’s Look at Animating Type Along a Path in After Effects.

Type along a path is a pretty ubiquitous process across Adobe apps, including Illustrator, Photoshop and even After Effects. With Ae, the method might not be as intuitive as the other applications, especially for new users.

MoBox’s Mike Ridolfi showcases how to get type in After Effects to align along a path, using a mask path in the viewer. The tutorial also covers how to animate the path with some practical examples. “It’s a pretty simple technique, but it is buried a little bit within in the text settings within after effects” Ridolfi notes. If you are just getting started with After Effects, type along a path is an essential motion graphics element to learn.
