Typewriter Effect

Typewriter Effect

The Typewriter Effect template for After Effects has everything you need to create a realistic typewriter animation with your custom text. It's perfect for video intros or displaying your company name and logo!

With a couple typewriters to choose from, you have complete and easy control over the movement of the typewriter body, carriage, paper, or text. You can choose your paper, font, font size, type speed, and more. And with the latest update, the key strikes and carriage shifts are automatic, so you can simply enter a line of text, and the animation is ready to render. And by popular demand, multiple lines of text are now easier than ever!

    • Works on both Mac or PC. No third-party plugins required. The original version (included in download) is compatible with Adobe After Effects, versions CS3 and all later versions. The updated version is compatible with v.17 (2020) and all later versions.
    • If your text fits on one line, and you leave the text at its default size and position, the animation is completely automatic. If you have multiple lines of text, a little bit of keyframing is required (shown in the tutorial).
    • Comps are HD (1920x1080) by default. The effect will work the same in any resolution, including 4K. Simply change the dimensions of the final comp.
    • This template has been "universalized", so it will work in After Effects running in other languages.

    The Typewriter Effect template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS3 as well as all later versions of After Effects.

    The Typewriter Effect template contains copyrighted intellectual property. The sharing or online posting of project files with or for anyone other than a client is prohibited. See the Terms and Conditions for more details.
