    Text layers created in After Effects are like layers imported from Illustrator.  One big advantage of using text layers created in After Effects in terms of quality is that

    • A.

      Text layers are continuously rasterized, so when you scale the layer or resize the text, it retains crisp, resolution-independent edges

    • B.

      You don’t have to create text in another program

    • C.

      Text layers are not independent layers and can be animated using presets

    • D.

      Illustrator file are of a fixed resolution, whereas text layers are not

    Correct Answer
    A. Text layers are continuously rasterized, so when you scale the layer or resize the text, it retains crisp, resolution-independent edges
    Explanation
    Text layers created in After Effects have the advantage of being continuously rasterized, which means that when you scale the layer or resize the text, it maintains sharp and clear edges regardless of the resolution. This ensures that the quality of the text remains high and doesn't become pixelated or blurry. This is in contrast to Illustrator files, which have a fixed resolution and may lose quality when scaled or resized. Therefore, using text layers created in After Effects provides better quality and flexibility in terms of scaling and resizing.

    The animation preset used in the main “Road Trip” text in this tutorial was called

    • A.

      Evaporate

    • B.

      Jiggy

    • C.

      Fogger

    • D.

      Transporter

    Correct Answer
    A. Evaporate
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Evaporate. This can be inferred from the statement "The animation preset used in the main 'Road Trip' text in this tutorial was called." Since the animation preset used is specified, it implies that the correct answer is the name of that animation preset, which is Evaporate.

    In order to make an animation preset to animate in reverse you would do what?

    • A.

      Choose Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Time-Reverse Keyframes

    • B.

      Drag keyframes to opposite ends of timeline

    • C.

      Choose Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Easy Ease

    • D.

      Right click on keyframes and choose Reverse

    Correct Answer
    A. Choose Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Time-Reverse Keyframes
    Explanation
    To make an animation preset animate in reverse, you would choose "Animation > Keyframe Assistant > Time-Reverse Keyframes". This option allows you to reverse the order of the keyframes, effectively playing the animation in reverse.

    The following keyframe picture represents what the keyframe interpolation type?

    • A.

      Easy Ease Out

    • B.

      Reverse Out

    • C.

      Normal Keyframe

    • D.

      Ease In

    Correct Answer
    A. Easy Ease Out
    Explanation
    The given keyframe picture represents the "Easy Ease Out" interpolation type. This means that the animation starts at a normal speed, then gradually slows down towards the end of the keyframe. This creates a smooth and natural easing effect, making the animation appear more realistic and less abrupt.

    An easy way to apply the transform properties of one object to another in After Effects (like the compass to the letter “I” in the tutorial) is by

    • A.

      Parenting

    • B.

      Binding

    • C.

      Copying the transform keyframes

    • D.

      Creating a null object

    Correct Answer
    A. Parenting
    Explanation
    Parenting is the correct answer because it refers to the process of linking two or more layers in After Effects, where the child layer inherits the transformations of the parent layer. By parenting the compass to the letter "I", any transformations applied to the "I" layer will also affect the compass. This allows for easy application of transform properties from one object to another.

    • C.

      Paths

    • D.

      Roads

  • 7. 

    To show the characters in “Your Name Here” separating and spreading across the composition, you used a text animation preset called

    • A.

      Increase Tracking

    • B.

      Character Spreading

    • C.

      Easy Tracking

    • D.

      Expand

    Correct Answer
    A. Increase Tracking
    Explanation
    Increase Tracking is the correct answer because it is a text animation preset that can be used to separate and spread the characters in a composition. By increasing the tracking, the space between each character is expanded, creating a spreading effect. This preset allows for easy and quick application of the desired animation without having to manually adjust each character's position.

    To animate specific characters within the Your Name Here text layer you use

    • A.

      A text animator group

    • B.

      Parenting

    • C.

      A null object

    • D.

      Another layer

    Correct Answer
    A. A text animator group
    Explanation
    A text animator group is used to animate specific characters within a text layer. It allows you to apply various animation properties such as scale, position, opacity, and rotation to individual characters or groups of characters within the text. This gives you more control over the animation and allows you to create dynamic and eye-catching effects.

    The “Directed By” layer follows a path preset throughout the composition.  What property determines where it will start and end as it moves on the path?

    • A.

      First Margin

    • B.

      Edge Distance

    • C.

    To make animations seem more natural, a common last step in an After Effects animation is to add

    • A.

      Motion blur

    • B.

      Duplicate layers

    • C.

      Sound

    • D.

      Easy easy keyframe interpolation to all keyframes

    Correct Answer
    A. Motion blur
    Explanation
    To make animations seem more natural, adding motion blur is a common last step in an After Effects animation. Motion blur helps to simulate the blur effect that occurs when objects are in motion, giving the animation a more realistic and fluid look. By adding motion blur, the animation appears smoother and more visually appealing to the viewer.
