Can you apply Inertial Bounce to Individual Characters?
Step 1: Add Inertial Bounce Text.ffx to you user presets folder.
(Windows) My Documents > Adobe > After Effects CC > User Presets
(Mac OS) Documents > Adobe > After Effects CC > User Presets
Step 2: Add preset to text
Step 3: Change the Expression Selector Amount keyframes to alter the timing.
Tip 1: You can change the sliders to alter the amount of inertial bounce. Low frequency + High Decay = Subtle bounce. I like Frequency .8 and Decay 8. I usually don’t alter the amplitude.
Tip 2: Individual character and Words.
I’ve noticed the preset acting wonky with multiple lines of text.
Adobe’s Type Tool is pretty robust. You can use it to create other animation.
