I was hoping for some help identifying a text effect.
It can be seen in this video, where the more complicated text characters seem to be broken up into individual strokes or pieces and they slide in. I imagine I could do it if I individually masked pieces out from a text layer, but if there is a simpler method I'd really love to know.
You can add multiple text animators for position and move each letter separately.
You need to change range unit to index and modify the start/end values to the letter you want to change (1 and 2 for the first character) and animate the position.
For animating the pieces of each letter (is it Japanese?) animating with masks is the only way I think..
