Here’s a list of all built-in effects ready to use in your games.

Behaviors

Behavior Effects animate letters continuously during time, after the letter has been shown.

You can also use Modifiers, which let you change the characteristics of your Behavior effects individually. (Read more here)

Appearances and Disappearances

Appearance Effects animate letters only when they’re appearing on screen, while Disappearance Effects make them dynamically disappear. For this reason, they’re mostly used in combination with the typewriter, which shows/hides letters one after another.

Reminder: you can set default Appearance and Disappearance Effects in the TextAnimator component, without having to write Appearance Effects tags in each text. Read more here.
