Reversing direction of Text Behaviors
on Jan 18, 2007 at 10:06:09 pm

Hi all -

Once again, back with another question. Any Motion gurus out there, would love your input.

So, several of the text effects in Motion feature a "wipe/burn/glow on" where a text object starts at 0 opacity and is brought up to 100% as the effect completes. You have two options for the direction these effects go - left to right, or right to left. I want my text to "burn" in ("Flash intro" behavior) from the right side of the screen.

What I can't figure out is, when I switch the Direction to "right to left", instead of burning on from 0% to 100%, it goes from 100% to 0% - i.e. erasing the text instead of laying it down. What gives? I can't imagine that a program like this wouldn't allow you to go either direction.

So what am I doing wrong?..FYI, I tried using the "Reverse" parameter, but you can't apply this to "Direction."

Thanks in advance!
