In this tutorial you will learn how to…

…make complexe animations (intro animation) based on one singel null object
…connect different layers and settings to each other
…drive the whole animations with just one layer
…offset animations in time with the help of expressions:

 
****copy and paste the following expressions into your AE-project and adjust the bold text****
thisComp.layer(“FillInYourLayernameHere“).transform.xRotation.
valueAtTime(time-FramenumberYouWantToOffset*thisComp.frameDuration)

 
example:

thisComp.layer(Null1).transform.xRotation.
valueAtTime(time-10*thisComp.frameDuration)
 
this tutoial shows you how to get two (or more) (text) layers swinging in an organic way, and how to conect them so that it looks as if they are interacting.
