This is a cool video. I love how the lyrics are all over the place in the background.

In After Affects there are presets for words to fly in and out and do all sorts of stuff. I figure I could probably achieve the effect using the default presets. Is there an easier way to manipulate the words and letters? Is there a plugin that would simplify the process?

I'm not seeing much preset stuff there.

Looks like maybe a particle generator is used when the individual letters are floating, and text animated to a path (in the text path twirl-down) for most everything else. Presets are only building blocks to get you where you're going at best. Expressions do most of the simplifying in AE.
