Applying Animated Text Presets in LiveType

There are two types of text that you can utilize in LiveType, system fonts and live fonts. System fonts are plane text that you can later modify by keyframing or adding an assortment of presets and live fonts are a library of fonts that are already fully animated. In this example we will take a system font and add a preset to bring it to life.

1 Go to the Textures Tab and click on it to choose a background so that we can see our text better. Simply click on a texture selection, then click the button at the bottom of the pane marked Apply To New Track.

2 Go to the Font Tab and choose the Apple Chancery font from the list, then click Apply To New Track and type something into the Text Entry field in the Inspector Window. You will have to click into the text entry field before you start typing in order to get a cursor.

3 Find the Effects tab and choose Celebrate from the list, then click Apply at the bottom. Keep in my that the text track is still selected when you are applying the effect. Always make sure that the appropriate track is active before applying an effect preset. Press the spacebar to preview your animated text.
