First post here so hello :)

Had a quick look for an answer on this but did not find anything.

So I have some text in after effects that I have added a texture to using an alpha matte. Of course moving/animating the text around does not move the texture also. So I can either parent the texture to the text or make a pre-comp and then my text moves/animates with texture perfectly.

The problem I am having is I want to use a text animation preset that comes with AE. When I use these on the text the texture goes back to being not animated even when parented or in a pre-comp. I am guessing something to do with the text animator only effecting the layer its created on?

Anyhow, is there any way around this at all?

I could make each letter a layer and animate them individually but just thinking about that makes my eyes bleed :)

Any help appreciated!

Regards,

Tom.

If you want the texture to stick to a text that animates as a whole, that may be possible, but to have the texture stick to each letter individually, you would have to animate each letter separately like you suggested.
