Animating Text -Tracking Characters Simulatenously
on Aug 12, 2015 at 3:26:59 pm

Hello All,

I've been trying to do a rather simple text animated this morning but somehow it is alluding me.

For example, if I was to have

THIS IS LOTS OF FUN

on the screen, I'd want all of the text simulatenously go from being wide to then having it's normal spacing. So the spacing would give the appearance of the word being "spread out" at first.

I can achieve with everything coming back to the beginning or end of the text but NOT in the middle where I'd like it to be.

I thought changing the anchor point might help some that that isn't working either.

Any thoughts?

Make sure your text is set to be centered - not justified to the left or right. Then, simply add a text animator for the tracking.
