    Exclamation AE Noob trying to make Horror Text Clip

    Hi everyone,

    I'm 20 yo student trying to do a Text-Based Horror trailer for ITC at college.
    I've spent the last few days playing around with some text effects, but I'm needing some guidance.

    Here are some examples of what I'm looking for:

    You are asking a very vague question. The responses you are likely to get here are unlikely to be any better than Googing "AE Horror Text Intro".

    Hi Tim,

    What I want to know the most is:
    - What kind of text effects should I use to get something simillar to the trailers I linked (noise, blur, movement, whatever, I'm kinda lost at this)
    - How do I make a 'flash' transition like the ones they use

    Would really apreciate if you can give me an hand.

    "After Effects" is a very advanced and very complicated program. It would be almost impossible to describe all the step by step actions required for all of the effects in those clips.
    IMHO, you should already understand the different kinds of layers which you can add in AE. And how to add effects to the layer. And how to set values (create keyframes) for the parameters of any effect at any required frame.
    For example, to "move" a "Text Layer" across the screen, one might set the "Transform/Anchor Point" (i.e. create keyframes) at the required frames.
