Expressive Text comes pre-packed with many ↗️animations that you can use straight away — but if you want, you can create your own animation assets and edit them with our Animation Editor.
To create a new custom animation select Expressive Text Animation under the Expressive Text category:
Open the animation editor and select which parameters you wish to modify.
Curves drive your text parameters through time and can be created inline. External curve assets can also be selected if you wish to share them between animations.

y=0and the final are
The result will be a linear animation with the duration of 1 second, which looks like this:
Changes to the animation graphs will be reflected in real-time. Just be sure to click the “refresh” button to play the animation from start.
That’s it, now you can customize multiple parameters to achieve different custom animations.
Tip: To give you more options, you can also play any animation backwards by simply ticking the reverse box in the style editor.
