I am building a 30 minute countdown timer for an event. Using Dan's brilliant expression, I have my text counting down perfectly.
I've then used Element 3D to style the text and to allow for some random 3D movement on the camera. The problem lies in the alignment of the text though as it counts down. The different size and shapes of each number as it changes causes the alignment of the text to jump slightly, as it is all re-positioned to accommodate the new number.
Does anyone know of any workarounds or if there's any alignment settings that Element would read?
The text layer that Element is reading from doesn't jump about in the same way, and all alignment/paragraph settings applied make no changes in the 3D layer.
Or maybe you can add some geometry that will keep your bounding box consistent as the inner numbers change. That you can after mask it out, or set it invisible with materials, idk. Never actually tried.
