The Typewriter Effect template for After Effects has everything you need to create a realistic typewriter animation with your custom text. It's perfect for video intros or displaying your company name and logo!


  • Choose between two typewriters
  • High resolution images allow you to zoom close in, or all the way out to reveal the entire typewriter
  • 7 high-resolution paper textures
  • 40 typewriter sound effects
  • Uses editable text, so it works with any font
  • Easily adjust your typing speed and the randomness of the pace
  • High-def, easy-to-follow video tutorial

You have complete and easy control over the movement of the typewriter, carriage, paper, or text. The typewriter is made from high-resolution photos of real typewriter elements, giving you total realism as well as total control.

Some animation work (keyframing) is required to create final typewriter animations as shown in the preview. The video tutorial (above) 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.

The Typewriter Effect template is compatible with After Effects CS3 and all later versions. Works on both Mac and PC. No plugins required. Comps are HD, 1920x1080.
