Hey what's going on guys... So I'm working on a kinetic typography project & I'm trying to place text inside of bigger text.
The way I got it set up, the text that I want placed inside of the bigger text is zoomed in with the camera, I wanted the Bigger text to opaque in & fill the screen, then to zoom out & reveal the bigger text... Hope the way I explained it didn't throw anyone off

You just need to parent one of the text's to the other(adjust anchor points first). Maybe add a quick dissolve on your smaller text. Another method would be to use an ease expression to control the scale from one layer to the other(I like that one better) Here's an example proeject with both methods.
