Scale one letter up at a time in a wipe style?
on May 3, 2013 at 9:18:36 pm

I'm trying to scale up one letter at a time in a word. For example if it read 'WORD', I would like to scale W up the down then O up and down etc so that it looks like the letters pop up and down one at a time in a wipe style. I cant find a preset for this although Im using CS4. Is there a way to do this? Maybe an expression?

You ought to be able to do this using AE's Text Animators:

Thanks for the reply. I've tried setting the scale and start options in the animate scale option but im having trouble finding the right settings. I cant seem to get it to scale up and down one letter at a time to get the effect I want. Could you suggest which parameters would be maybe best to try and adjust, as there are other options to change?

Helena, here is a screen capture of the text effect I think you are describing. Analyze it in order to recreate it on your system.



Good luck!
