Animations allow you to convert a piece of plain text into a text presentation.
To animate your text, select a plain text item (this does not work on fancy text) OR click 'Text' from the left menu, and select 'Add Animation' from the expanded options.
On the right column of the editor page, add your text content under 'Slides'. Use the small square box besides the Animation text box to set the time duration for each slide, in seconds. It is set to 3 seconds by default.
Add more slides by pressing the plus icon. Use the media controls to play or stop your slide.
Animated text content can be customized like plain text. You can change the animated text's:
- Line height and spacing
- Additional effects like shadows
Text effects can vary greatly between slides within an Animation, allowing you to expressive your creativity to the fullest.
To standardize formatting on your slides, just click the slide that uses the font, color and formatting that you'd like to apply to your other slides within that Animation. In the media control options, click 'Apply to all slides' found right besides the stop button.
Animation is free to use, and it can be used on all kinds of designs with plain text items. If your design is an image, adding Animation will convert it to a video. An animated design can be downloaded as an mp4 or .gif file.
