Typewriter, After Effects, word for word


How to make words appear on the screen, not by the letter, but by the word?

In After Effcts, add the Typewriter animation preset, then customize it.

Open your text layer, and then open the animator,

Next, Open the range selector, then toggle open Advanced.

Change UNITS to INDEX. Then change “Based On” to “Words”.
