I have some footage of an Interview and I've been requested to input some facts relevant to the subject being discused during it, so I'm keen on having a CNN type "ticker tape" style stream of info running along the bottom of the Frame...
I've been told that there are some "presets" in AE that have already been built and can be downloaded and then all I have to do is position it then input the date, is this (hopefully !) true ?
There are text animation presets that are installed with AE but you will need to learn the basics to use them.
You could probably accomplish the same thing in a video editing application if you wanted to.... unless your mind's eye sees more in the "CNN Style" than a horizontal text crawl. Even then, you could probably accomplish a lot.
