Step 2

Use Essential Graphics Panel & Type Your Name

Open Essential Graphics

The Essential Graphics window is where we keep a bunch of options to make things even easier. If it's not already visible, to find this within After Effects open Window > Essential Graphics.

Insert Your Text

While looking at the "Render - Static" composition, type in the text you wish to create into the "Name" field within the 'Essential Graphics' panel. There is a limit of 15 characters. Once you do this, you will see it update with your text. It will be a mess - do not worry!

Step 3

Set Your Text Nicely

Open Composition “Set Your Text Nicely!”

This composition is where we get to control the layout of our text. At this stage it will still look a mess. To get started tidying things up, do the following:
- select all the letters (Ctrl+A for Windows OR ⌘ + A for Mac)
- with all letter selected, open up one of the collapsed layers and navigate to the Transform controls
- set the Scale to 100% and Rotation to 0%

Adjust positioning and scale to suit

This may take some time to get right, but we have two tips that may help.
1. Holding Shift when dragging the nodes will keep the letters in proportion
2. Pressing Ctrl + R (Windows) OR ⌘ + R (Macintosh) will bring up the ruler. Clicking and dragging your mouse from the horizontal ruler will create a guide for you to place your text on

Step 4

Choosing Colors

Essential Graphics – Color Selection

You've got your text laid out, now it's time to tweak the colors (optional!). In the Essential Graphics panel you will need to turn Off the "Original Style". Then the color choices you make will take effect! This can be lots of fun - we recommend vibrant and neon colors to help create that Cyberpunk vibe.

Step 5

Changing Font

Open Composition “Set Your Text Nicely!”… again

We want to select all our text again (Ctrl+A for Windows OR ⌘ + A for Mac). But this time, open up the font selection menu (under the Character panel). Choose your new font.

Once again (with all the letters still selected) you will need to:
- open up one of the collapsed layers and navigate to the Transform controls
- set the Scale to 100% and Rotation to 0%

Then you will need to reposition the letters until they look good.

Change the Font here! (1-4)

You'll notice that when looking at of the Render compositions that the font choice has not applied. To get your new font selection working, you will need to use all four compositions called "Change the font here!".

Open one of these and select all the letters (Ctrl+A for Windows OR ⌘ + A for Mac). You'll notice in the font selection panel it appears the new font is chosen, but not applied to the letters in your composition. This seems to be an odd After Effects behaviour.

To fix this, with the letters selected, click inside the font selection area and hit arrow key down, then up to reselect your desired font. You should notice the font change in this composition.

Repeat that for the remaining 3 "Change the font here!" compositions.

Step 6

Admire your creation!
