MOTION: Text in a Shape and masked
by Tristan Bellowson on Jan 20, 2015 at 12:48:05 pm
I am trying to do the following - I want to put text in a shape so they are linked, and motion path it to the left.
Now all sounds easy, but the text and shape is hidden partially at the start behind a sculpture. The idea is that it moves out from behind the sculpture to reveal itself.
Now, I can go as far as creating a shape (I am doing this IN motion as I want it to 'write on') and masking it with a circle mask and then applying a motion path.
However, when I add text to 'inside' the shape, not only does it not have teh same motion path properties, but I can't mask it off either.
I want teh text to attach itself to the shape with all the same masking and motion properties, but cannot do it.
Can anyone suggest anything? Is it the order I am doing it in?
