HowTo: Animate text so that it appears word-by-word (reading speed)
on Nov 30, 2014 at 7:14:34 pm

Dear Sony Vegas forum,

I simply cannot find a way to type text, and then animate it to appear word-by-word at a set speed. Or letter-by-letter.

This is probably trivial to some people :)

Thx in advance!

Not trivial. Very useful thing to know how to do and very effective in videos of all kinds.
It is possible using ProType Titler in Media Generators.

Choose from the collections (Four squares in the middle grey bar) Select popup. Then go to the Scale Y section and delete all but one keyframe...(you may need to readjust the remaining keyframe up or down to make your text appear at the right size and proportion). Then on the opacity keyframes - slide the second keyframe all the way to the left.

I hope that helps.

I should mention that I was first introduced to this technique by Josh Sauder of Pinnacle Productions. Thanks Josh!
