This After Effects project uses a simple index expression to offset the text layers and nulls to control the distribution using Expression Control sliders. This allows them to be freely distributed with one null while setting keyframes for Y-Position and Rotation with another.

    that allows us to improve quickly. Pity that it doesn’t work on a french AE version 🙁 it seems there is a problem with expression.
    I had the same problem when i bought “making it look great” dvd.

    This is a great project. I really appreciate you uploading it. How could I add other comps as layers so that each line of text was different?

      Hi Ana, put each word into a separate precomp and switch out the duplicate text comps with each individual one. Best wishes, John.
