Images from the Typewriter Effect for After Effects
  • Compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS3 and all later versions (including Creative Cloud). Works on both Mac or PC. No third-party plugins required.
  • Some animation work (keyframing) is required to create final typewriter animations as shown in the preview. The video tutorial takes you through the process step-by-step. In the video, a typing animation is created from beginning to end. The project is explained in detail along the way. There's no limit to how much text you can have in your custom typewriter animation, but expect to put in about three minutes of work per word, once you watch the video and understand how it works.
  • Comps are HD, 1920x1080.

The Typewriter Effect template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS3 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
