My Typography Video

I know that a lot of people ask this but i'm not asking for the bouncing text that just wiggles a little bit, is there any way to bounce text like a ball would bounce. Sorry if there is an easy way to find this out but I am doing this for a GCSE school project and we have very little time so that's why i'm just asking the question instead of spending hours trying to find a way to do it.

Thanks a lot
Daniel Callaghan

EDIT: Also how can I make an 'L' shape with two diffeernt sets of texts. Baically I have one line of the song and my camera moves out and angles it slightly to the left and I want the next line to be on the right hand side at (what looks like) a right angle the first line, is there any way to do this.

I did apologise if the answer was obvious but I didn't want to spend hours trying to word correctly in Goolge or YouTube and watch videos that I have already seen about ten times before, simply because I don't have the hours to spend doing that as we have two more units to complete to get extra grades in iMedia and we have till about Easter to complete them, and this is my first kinetic typography video.

Not sure about which hours you are talking about but both links lead to pretty straight forward tutorials.
This one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xq-uvOSKAQ

8 minutes, just replace the ball with your text.

this one

15 minutes.

After all it's not exactly rocket science but just pretty basic keyframe animation, so bite the bullet ands do it.

I know how to move the camera like in this tutorial that I have seen for about the hundreth time (to paraphrase the video) but what i'm wanting is something that resembles the inside of a 3D cube with the text written on the walls of the cube (just without the cube visible). The reason I asked on here was because I don't know if this is possibe and how I would phrase it in Google/YouTube.

Why didn't you ask that question like 6 hours earlier? Specific questions lead to specific answers.
Of course it is possible. Create your text/whatever layer(or 6 for a full cube), set it to 3D, rotate it and align it. Then place and animate the camera.

Thanks, so I need to put the camera in after I have lined the text at 90 degrees (or what looks like 90 degrees)?
