Chris Zachary shares a simple but effective typewriter animation preset for After Effects.
Having glyphs come on the screen over time is an easy task in Adobe After Effects, thanks to the text animators. Yet, if you are looking to create a more nuanced animation, like a typewriter effect, that could mean more work.
Typewriter Animation (with Cursor) Preset.
A new preset from Chris Zachary can make that type of animation a bit easier. The preset is super-handy and straightforward.
“I find myself animating typing text in After Effects pretty frequently, so I decided it was time to make my own preset,” Zachary says about the Ae tool. “This one includes a customizable blinking cursor and the ability to do custom easing on the animation.”
