I am familiar with After Effects region selectors which allow you to select certain words in a text layer and adjust them independently from the other words n the text. I love that feature and use it a lot when in after effects.
Is there anything similar in motion?
I have a sentence of about 6 words and I want 2 of the words to fade in before the rest of the sentence. Usually in AE I would do this with region selectors but how would I achieve this in motion without having to make each word it's own text layer.
Sure is - in Motion 3, with the Text tool selected, just drag over the letters you want to adjust. In Motion 4, there's a brand new Adjust Glyph tool (in the toolbar or right-click on the text) that lets you select and then transform, format, or style individual or multiple glyphs.
