I've been requested by a client to recreate the text animation featured in this video:
So the text basically 'sketches' on with a jerky stop motion type feel. I've been provided vectors of the text outline (which I've animated to 'write on') and an additional fill vector that I need to reveal.
I've been fiddling around with the scribble animation setting and the 'paint on' preset but haven't been able to find the correct setting. I'm assuming that one simple solution would be to keyframe a mask reveal, but there are approximately 60 different shots to animate so it would be a time saver to find a quick setting. My gut says this is simple and I'm missing something obvious, but I don't know!
You can try using a Matte Choker (using the fill layer as it's own mask) and animate the choke in steps to get the feeling that you're after. A more complex way of doing it is to use the Matte choker and create 3 separate fill layers (thin lines fill, medium and then full) and the use a simple transition wipe on each layer to gradually fill in the letters.
