Texture on individual letters with text animators?
on Sep 28, 2018 at 4:32:18 pm

I'm using a pre-comped Form layer to create some sparkly "glitter" texture for some text. Is there any possible way to animate this text by letter, *using the text animators*, and have the texture stick to the letters? I'm doing a lyric video, so separating all the letters to their own layers and animating letter-by-letter would be a nightmare. I'm assuming this is not possible but wanted to ask just in case. Thanks for any ideas!

Thanks for the response!

Could you give me the name for that plug-in? I searched before posting but didn't come up with anything that specific.

Surely You Jest!? Or maybe misunderstood the issue. I am animating words for the lyrics of an entire song. Aside from the torture of separating and animating all this text into different layers, I have to consider revisions, which always comes with client work. What if they wanted to change the fonts or layouts or animation style after I've done all this? Using text animators is the only reasonably efficient and flexible way to do this unless I can find that magic plug-in. Thanks again for your time!
