How to Create Text Message Animation in Premiere Pro

Well, another way to create text message animation is using Adobe Premiere Pro. You may either purchase a MOGRT file (motion graphics template) or google for a free text bubble PNG file and quickly create a text message animation in Premiere Pro. Here, we will be covering the second solution.

How to make a text message animation in Premiere Pro.

Step 1
Download two free text bubble PNG files to your PC and import them into your Premiere Pro.
Step 2
Colorize the text bubble.

Drag a text bubble into the timeline > Go to the Effects Panel > search for “Tint” in the search bar > drag the Tint effect to the text bubble layer on the timeline > go back to Effect Controls > pick a color to your liking for the speech bubble.

Step 3
Add keyframes to animate the text bubble.

Move the playhead to the beginning of the text bubble > select the Motion in Effect Controls > move the anchor point to the right bottom corner of the speech bubble.

Next, head back to Scale in Effect Controls > move the playhead 10 frames forward > click the Stopwatch to add the first keyframe > move the playhead 4 frames backward > add the second keyframe and make the Scale size 105 > right-click this keyframe > select Ease in > move the keyframe to the first keyframe > make the Scale size to zero.

Now the text bubble shall pop up in the video.

Step 4
Add text to the text bubble and resize and reposition the text properly and customize the text font, etc.
Step 5
Animate the text.

With the text selected, go to Effect Controls > search for Cross Dissolve > drag this effect to the beginning of the text layer > trim the length of the cross dissolve effect. Or you may apply a wipe effect to the text layer as well.

Step 6
Copy and paste the first text message effect to create as many text message animations as you want.
