How to Add Bounce to a Text Animator with Timing

I’m trying to figure out how to add bounce/overshoot to text animations while maintaining the ability to control their timing with keyframes.

The goal of this is to be used when a person is talking, and bring in the text as they talk. Since people don’t talk in perfect rhythm, the ability to control the timing of the words is key.

Below are two examples:

This first one is a normal text animation with a range selector where the words come in at different times.

Test 1 No Overshoot.gif

There is no overshoot or bounce on this version but I have the ability to control the timing of the animation with keyframes.

Here is the layer properties for this example:

no overshoot.png

This second one is what I would like the animation to look like.

Test 2 With Overshoot.gif

This is the layer properties for this example:

with overshoot.png

Does anyone have any advice on how to combine these two gifs to be able to have a Text Animator with bounce/overshoot and the ability to control the animation timing?

Thank you!

Delete your range selector and replace it wtih an expression selector. Put this code in your expression selector's "amount" property. You can edit the delay, frequenccy, amplitude and decay to time it and change the other characteristics of the bounce. I'd pickwhip those values to slider controls in your effects panel so you can keyframe them and edit more easily in general. You can even select all your sliders and the new text animator in your layers and save them as a new effect so you don't need to set it up again in the future.

delay = .1;
myDelay = delay*textIndex;
t = (time - inPoint) - myDelay;
if (t>=0){
freq =3;
amplitude = 150;
decay = 8.0;
s = amplitude*Math.cos(freq*t*2*Math.PI)/Math.exp(decay*t);
{s,s}
}else{
value
}
