Identifying a Text Effect (revealing text) 19 Oct 2018 09:54 #97444

I'm trying to create the effect where text appears from behind an invisible line at some point in the frame.

I thought that I could do this with Masks, by just creating a mask and then keyframing the text to move out from behind it, but I am unable to do this as the X, Y, and Z inputs in the inspector under the "Text" menu are un-keyframable. I can only keyframe the entire wireframe, and that also moves the mask with the text.

Help! (PS - I can't yet use Motion :(

Thank you,
Phil

Duplicate the clip that you are keying the text over and stack it on top of the original. Place the text between the two clips and apply a mask to the top clip. Animating the text clip’s x position can then be done independently of the mask.

As said, and use the Draw Mask.
