Helpful Tips to Work With Text Animation
The templates you saw in this round-up are the best way to save time while creating a typographic animation. Here tips that you can apply to any text animation:
- Match your text to music: typography alone might feel a little flat. But pair it with audio and match the tempo and your video is instantly engaging. Check out Envato Elements for unlimited audio tracks.
Mix-and-match fonts: there's no rule that says you have to use a single font while creating an animation. Try multiple typefaces for a creative video.
