hi
i was wondering if there are any tutorials on the text trasition often used in music video where the text comes in from the back to the front and instead of a color the text exists of footage from the next video shot.

Good news! It's pretty easy: you use the text layer as a track matte for the incoming video. Here's some good info on track mattes:

i feel like banging my head against a wall. of course its so simple. i was thinking about masking the letters by hand. i havent used the track matte option for so long, i kind of forgot about it. but thanx a lot for reminding me about that handy little tool.

Using a track matte to do this is the fastest and easiest method, ma'am.
