Swinging Text (motion typography technique) Tutorial

Click to tweet? --

The swinging Text Tutorial for a motion typography technique in adobe after effects.

In this after effects tutorial you'll learn about how to make text (typography) swing into place in a scene using 3d layers and manual key frames and parenting. The idea behind the technique is to give the text weight and substance as it enters the scene using overshooting.

If you get stuck or have questions just leave them below in the comments. Chances are someone else is having the same problem and I can only answer the questions I get asked. So ask away.

Also if you end up making something cool share it with me. It's great to see how folks fair getting through the tutorial and it's awesome to see what you make.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial and have a nice day.
