Kinetic Typography: Swinging Text in Motion 5
Published on March 18, 2014
Here is another video that demonstrates "kinetic typography" in Motion 5.
In this one, I show a way you can create a swinging text effect. This is where text swings into place.
You can watch the video for the specific steps, but the basic workflow goes like this:
- Add the text
- Adjust the anchor point of the text
- Add an oscillate parameter behavior to the rotation
- Keyframe the oscillate behavior so it decreases over time
- Adjust the offset so the text starts in an up position
In the end, you'll have text that swings into place.
This is another interesting way you can move text in Motion 5.
I hope you find this "kinetic typography" video helpful.
