Show of the Week: Animated Typography

This week’s video comes from Ummi Ammar who created a neat animated typography effect in ProShow Producer. The captions follow along with the spoken word soundtrack so you can hear the speaker and read the words on the screen as he speaks them. A really spectacular effect that had all our heads spinning!

For those of you brave enough to try this yourself, Ummi typed in each caption by hand and then used the capture frame function to save as a JPEG. Using a slick combination of caption keyframing and motion effects, the captions were meticulously synced to the spoken word soundtrack creating the effect you see in the video. The background was kept solid white and a rounded PNG gradient was used as a top layer to give the overall look more depth. Awesome job Ummi!
