Designing animated text for a music video

There are many fundamental steps to consider when developing animated text for a music video.

The aim of the text is to enhance the video through the use of visually attractive graphics and exciting elements. Such effects don't have to be complex to be appealing; add visually exciting text and effects, a fun concept in time with the music, a fast pace, and you can succeed.

The animated text and effects will be developed to a fictional music loop that I have created. This project will take you through a step-by-step process on how to create a simple, yet visually appealing text that will enhance the music video. The steps will use After Effects and will cover tips on file set-up, animation, sequencing and design.
