Here's how to use text animators in After Effects.

Some people think that the Text Animator presets that ship with After Effects are cheesy and hard to use. In this tutorial Joey is going to prove those people wrong by showing you how Text Animators work, and more importantly, how to use them for fun and profit! You’ll learn some new techniques for working with Text Animators so you can modify existing effects and create some of your own new ones. By the end of this lesson you'll have a new tool in your MoGraph tool belt, and be able to start building your own library of Text Animation effects to use in your work.
