Animating per-character in After Effects

Emily Skaer graduated from A&D in 2009, and currently works as a freelance animator in Portland, OR.

If you are an After Effects user, you probably have wondered at some point how to animate text per letter. I always forget, but this tutorial is fantastic at explaining it. There's more from where this came from, too! Creative Cow has excellent tutorials and Aaron Rabinowitz is very thorough with his explinations. Wonderful teacher.
