Helpful Tips to Work With Text Animation

The templates you saw in this roundup are the best way to save time while creating a typographic animation. Here are some 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.
  • Use your branding: a template is really just a starting point. To make it your own, you have to add your brand specifics. That includes using easy controls to update the color scheme. Add your logo for even more customization.
