In this After Effects tutorial, we will use text layers and shape layers to create a simple call out title. After we make the call out title, we’ll use the shape layer to layer on additional shapes with borders, offsets, and an effect called “Trim Path” to allow us to animate a stroke around our call out title. We will also use keyframe animation to lock down when and where this animation will begin and also do a little more animating and tweaking of the overall call out title to finish the effect up nicely.
