Hi,

 

Completely new to Adobe After effects and looking for an answer to a simple question. I've seen numerous videos using the saber plugin for text effects. I'm looking  to create a cinematic type trailer with multiple texts being flashed and animated to the screen such as coming soon, thrilling adventure, etc. I've seen videos on how to create many different effects, but none of the videos had different text appearing one after another. Just curious how you transition from one text to another like a movie trailer. Please excuse my lack of proper terminology here, I'm very very new to this but love it!

 

thanks,

mike

With multiple layers.  Each piece of text should be an individual text layer.  If the text requires multiple elements on different layers, then each of those extra elements will also need to be duplicated as well.  

 

You can also keyframe text changes on a single text layer using the "Text Source" parameter, but this is seldom a good idea, except in special circumstances.

 

If you start at the beginning with After Effects the whole experience will be less frustrating:
