    How to edit text composition in After Effects

    mattr68913315

      Hello,

       

      I downloaded a template from Videoblocks which is a typography template, You can see it here After Effects CS4 Template: Sports Promo Typography - VideoBlocks

       

      When I open it up in After Effects, I expected it to be editable text to change the words, but it doesn't seem to be the case. I can't figure out how you're supposed to change the text but still keep the effects?

       

      If you double click on each text composition, it comes up with the camera effects and the background colour, but not a way to edit the text on screen. I can't seem to find a way of doing this anywhere.

       

      Can anyone explain to me how you do this? Sorry, I'm quite new to After Effects.

       

      Here are some screenshots to show what I mean. Thanks
