According to Wikipedia, Kinetic Typography is the technical name for "moving text." But this term is a bit misleading because all animated type can be considered "moving." What differentiates Kinetic Typography from other forms of text animation is an expressive treatment that imbues the text with emotion. When Kinetic Type is combined with the spoken word, the text takes on a dimension of performance that underscores conflict or character. Therefore, a more accurate name for Kinetic Typography might be "performance text"
In this 10 part tutorial, you will use Apple's Motion to create a Kinetic Typography treatment of an old Merry Melodies cartoon. Along the way, you'll learn how to sync type to markers; animate individual characters or entire words using Behaviors and the Adjust Glyph Tool; work with a 3D Scene Camera to fly from one text object to another; make extensive use of Keyframes to animate your text and work with Shapes and a Replicator to create supplemental graphics.Buy iTunes/iPad Edition $29.99
