I have a blackboard background and I have white text on it. I'd like to know how I could create a wipe effect? So when the board is full, I'd like to wipe the text off of it.

I've done this by placing a copy of the blackboard above it, open the layer window and using the eraser to "erase" the blackboard, then just animate the "start" or "end" position under the stroke options. In effect you are wiping on the blackboard over your text, but it looks like the text is being erased.
