I'm on a deadline, like pretty much everyone here I guess.
The thing is that I want to animate a layer to match the speed of a trimmed path and after two days of trying lots of things I've reached a point where I need help.
I want to do something similar to this
I've managed the shape and the mask for the text needed to have the text where I need using repeaters, three shapes one for the front, one for the alpha mate of the text and one as a base where the text will be.
The thing is that I have no idea how to match the speed of the text layer with the paper since trim paths have no keyframes.
I honestly have no idea how to do it. Can anyone help me?
My bad, the effect was at 3:48 (I wrote this post on my phone so it messed with my typo a bit)
I solved it yesterday after doing something very basic, I'm posting it here in case someone finds it useful:
Matching a layer's movement to the movement of a trimmed path.
1-Set keyframes for start and end of the trimmed animation
2-Copy the path of the trimmed shape and paste it in a Null's position
3-Expand the time of the Null's position to match the start and end of the trimmed layer.
4-Check on Null how many frames it moves per second
5-Apply to the layer
6-Precompose and adjust timing if needed/desired.
It was a lot easier than it looked; it may not be the most elegant way but it gets the job done.
