Cel Animation. Old School.

They basically drew the animations by hand, frame by frame, in something like Photoshop with the brush tool, possibly with a Wacom to make things easier.

I'd recommend using something like 4K Video Downloader or Keepvid to download the video and analyze it frame-by-frame to see if you can recreate some of the transitions.

Also, look into techniques like "Onion Skinning".

cel animation? What video were you watching? I love that song btw...or kina..its just too short with a loop..But the letters are so small its kinda hard what to tell is going on. If you change your text to masks and then animate the masks from a few points that could work. or using a track matte of a growing sphere could work too...looks like a little displacement map might work..try caustics with sphere that has a radial gradient animation .

You could probably get away from handdrawn, but man, it'd take SO much longer to try figure out how to come up with cool transitions for each line as they did. You'd really need to know your effects well. Definitely "easier" to do hand drawn if you want this style.

That template is NOTHING like the video. It's just wiggly text? If you want to use templates rather than create something on your own, check these out:

Quick tip for dancing type. You can achieve it quite easily with Turbulent Displace and Posterize Time.

• Apply Turbulent Displace to your text

• Adjust the Scale and Amount to desired settings

• Set an expression on the evolution to something like time*1000

• Pre-Compose your text layer and move all attributes

• Apply Posterize Time and set it to something like 5 frames per second
