We can't give you much help if we don't know what your technique is. Generally if you create a text box that you and you want to animate the position all you do is set some position keyframes. This is really basic stuff. AE takes a while to learn. I suggest that you start here: Basic Workflow
To learn about animating text the best resources for a quick explanation can be found by simply typing "animate text" in the search help field at the top right corner of AE. You'll be directed to a bunch of community resources, tutorials and the help files for animating text.
Thank you Rick for your prompt response and your help. I have looked into the links, however is there a video tutorial that explains how to animate text?
Type "animate text" in the search help and find a bunch of tutorials and videos. Just scroll down through the list.
I am trying to get this style text box with that gradient any idea if these are preset on After Effects?
If you click on the link below and on the Medtronic video:
There are no presets for that, but it's easy to do:
- Create a comp-wide solid in the vertical dimension of your choice and add the Bevel Alpha effect to it. Adjust the effect as necessary.
- Above it, add a text layer or two and a logo. Scale these items to taste.
- Precompose these layers, and add a comp-size rectangular mask to it. Feather the mask horizontally-only, then move the entire mask to the left.
- Animate the precomp's opacity as necessary.
If the this explanation sounds a little like a foreign language, know that I used common, ordinary AE terminology and that you really need to follow that link to the basics that Rick posted above.
To mix a few metaphors, learning AE is like learning a foreign language. When you travel to a country, you might carry a phrasebook to help you get around. If you stay, you delve deeper into the language. Knowing the basics is your phrasebook.
Yes it certainly did sound like a foreign language lol
Thank you for your help. I will start with basics then look in to this step-by-step.
