I have a website that I am updating and I wanted to create some really cool text effects. The effects are something that I want to create in After Effects to give it the movie effect with sounds, etc.
What I'm looking for is some add-on software that can boost the text. Any ideas?
Since you're brand-new here, there's a VERY crucial question to ask: have you ever used After Effects before?
The reason: it's not the kind of application you use for a couple of tricks with and expect things to turn out right the first time. It takes a good knowledge of the AE basics to make it do what you want.
So how do you get the basics? You go here.
...and if you need this animation in a big hurry, you might want to have a Plan B ready to go.
Dave has a point and in addition to what he said, you should not lose yourself in vague phrases like "cool". What you think is cool and what I consider that are no doubt two compeltely different things and just the same, context matetrs. What works on its own may be absolutely terrible on a website. Such are the trappings of design. Start with teh many animation presets that come with AE and then look up tutorials on the internet for more...
