I have found After Effects a lot easier than I though I would and I think this is majorly to do with Carstens slow step by step tutorials which I really appreciate.
Below you can see I made an animated title. I did this by creating text and then adding 3d properties to it then adding a camera layer. Lastly, I added a solid coloured background and a glow effect. Despite using a coloured background on this composition I learnt today how to export a title sequence with a transparent background by changing the channel to RGB Alpha.
