I wanted to know if anyone had some insight on how to simulate a messaging app. I have no problems creating the animation in Motion. I have purchased messaging plugins fro PixelFilmStudios and XEffects Messages, but I need to know how to create my own for a fictitious platform.
The difficulty is understanding how to create a generator that can animate upward every time a new text message is added; at any point in time of an FCP X storyline.
I created my own version as well: https://motion-master-templates.com/messenger-pack/
What I did to recreate the scroll effect was create an empty scroll text effect animation in Motion and then apply this on top of the other text effects in FCPX. This way everything underneath got pushed up. If you watch the tutorial video you can get a better idea of what I had done. :)
