The Power of Shape Layers:

Hey everybody and welcome back to another episode of 13 Minute AE Tutorials where you learn tips, tricks, and shortcuts in 13 minutes or less. No BS, just AE. In this episode, we’re going to take a look at controlling the color of your text. Now, you may be thinking that this is After Effects 101 level stuff. I can assure you, there’s a lot more to choosing how you control your text color than you might think. There are times when you will want to specifically use the Character Panel, Layer Styles, Fills, or Text Animators. Each method has its own strengths and weaknesses. But there is one method that is, by far, the most versatile, gives you the most control, and can be used in any situation. Needless to say, I guarantee you’ll learn something new from this tutorial.
