I'm trying to get a text revealing effect with some masks and text animators. Here's what I want:

I animated every letter individually to get this result but it's not as fluid and smooth as I want.

The goal here is the characters coming from "under the floor", up a little bit and then "sitting" on the final position. I'm pretty sure that there's a easier way to do so by using text animators or something like that because letter by letter animation takes a really long time.

Thanks in advance.

The term for this is called "overshoot", so if you want to explore other options, that's what you are looking for.

You can do it with a couple of text animators, one for up and one for down. Here's a quick little project I made. I just offset the "start" position and the "upper" to create the bounce Take a look at the project and if you have any questions, let me know.
