Light glow on text from left to right

Hi! I’ve been working a lot with Premiere, but I’ve recently started playing around in After effects as well. I’ve been working on a project, but there was one thing i couldn’t figure out how to do. I tried google searching but i didn't find anything helpful. I’m wondering how they did, or rather how i can achieve a similar effect on the text as they’ve done in this trailer:





As i’ve said i’m not really that experienced with this program, so i’d appreciate if you’d explain in a way that I could understand! Thanks for the help!

(Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum)

Make your text layer. Add an adjustment layer above it and add the glow effect, tweak the settings to taste. Now just add a mask to the adjustment layer(about 25% the width of the comp), twirl open the settings and add a very large horizontal feather. Now just animate the mask from left to right.

Here's an example project demonstrating technique.

Or CC Light Sweep (or whatever it's called).
