The Lazy Animator Guide to Animating Editable Text in Cartoon Animator
Are you tired of editing text in external software and importing it into Cartoon Animator as a prop just so you can apply some simple animation to it? What about the hassle of making multiple text props when you just need to update a word or fix a typo in your animation?
The Lazy Animator Guide to Animating Editable Text in Cartoon Animator is a two hour, forty minute video course, split into twelve lessons that will show you how to get more from Cartoon Animator's built in text tool in Cartoon Animator including:
- How to create and format editable text within Cartoon Animator.
- How to animate text using the Transform Track.
- How to to make text animations more dynamic using Transition Curves.
- How to create text effects like drop shadows, subtitles, squash'n'stretch animation and more.
- Understanding the limitations of the Text Tool so you'll know when to use it and when to import text from another application as a prop.
Cartoon Animator's Text Tool is often under rated with many users almost completely ignoring it. However it has been a part of the software since the beginning and allows you to easily edit text within the program without having to rely on external graphics software to create text as imported, non-editable props.
The course assumes you already have a very basic understanding of how to animate props using the transform track in Cartoon Animator and are at least somewhat familiar with the text tool (you've at least tried the tool out to see what it is).
Included are five bonus videos demonstrating different ways to create and animate editable text to hopefully get your imagination and problem solving skills working on how to animate text directly in Cartoon Animator where you can easily update the actual text on the fly using the text tool.
12 video mini course totaling 2 hour 40 minutes of watch time.
