    Hi, Im trying to do something similiar to this and this
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syf8olcM0z4
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIDdx7NPJgo

    At the minute there is something wrong with what Im doing, the movement isnt quite right and it doesnt seem to flow as seemlessly as it should. Im sorry that I cant explain my problem in more detail, I just know that it isnt right.

    I started by positioning the text in a large comp (5000×5000). I then nested this into my final comp where I keyframed the position, rotate and scale properties of the large accordingly.

    Does anyone have any tutorials or tips on how to go about this effectively? This effect is very popular at the minute (Sky, abc).

    “I started by positioning the text in a large comp (5000×5000). I then nested this into my final comp where I keyframed the position, rotate and scale properties of the large accordingly.”

    It sounds like you are trying to do this as one piece that you then animate a unit. Is that right. If I am understanding that correctly, that’s not the best way to go about it. I would do each text element as it’s own layer so as to have ultimate flexibility and control. There’s too much going on to do it effectively without doing so.

    Thanks for the links. Very imaginative typography and motion graphics.

    I suggest your drop the artist a note there on youtube and ask him/her to tell you a bit about the projects.

    If you watch carefully, you will see that every major new sequence has a transition. So, as Nick noted, you should be carefully dicing your project up into smaller, more manageable pieces.

    This is my standard sigfile so do not take it personally: “For crying out loud, read the freakin’ manual.”
