this is probably beginner question - I can not figure out how to make text animate in one style (for example: slide in based on characters) and later animate same text out (slide out based on words). Animation based on characters/words can not be automated. Question: I can do this by creating 2 layers but in case I need to change the text, I would need to change it twice. Anyone can help?
I assume you're use the text animation presets. It's easy -- animate the text in, then move the timeline cursor to the point in time where you want the text to animate out, and add the appropriate preset. It should work like a charm.
