My client needs some social media subtitles that 'pop' and they are very keen on the idea of each word revealing as it is spoken, like this: https://twitter.com/BBCTwo/status/1058310600068087808
I can't find anything that does this job. Anyone know how I can replicate this kind of text without it taking hours?
I would look for template/scripts for After Effects. Post in the AE forum also.
Google something like "After Effects script motion titles." It is not easy to pin down, since "timed captions" is close to "timed text" subtitling formats. But you want text (like captions/subtitles) that animates.
For example, I know there are scripts available for AE that will take a bunch of text from a text/Excel file and bring it in. I don't know whether the specific task you're looking for has been created.
