I know this may be simple, but I have two questions regarding the 3D Extruded Text and the Shatter Deformer.

How do I reverse the affect so that text comes together instead of exploding out?

How do I delay the animation...sorry, very new to this plug-in!

Thanks for the help!

I can think of two ways, offhand.

One would be with your video editor, having it reverse the clip, and offset it on the timeline. Quick, efficient, but not exceptionably flexible.

Alternately, within the plugin controls, change the Shatter Deformer Time Mode to Manual and keyframe the Manual time (working back towards 0.0 to reverse the shatter). With that you can control delays and speed.

Thanks for your help Ron! I will try the second method as it seems more flexible. Have a great day!
