So I'm struggling with parenting and feel there's probably a simple solution but I can't find it.
I've got some text and separated each character into it's own layer. I want each word to move as a group, but then independently move each letter.
So I've made a null for each word and parented the letters from that word to its null. So far so good. I've got the words changing position and rotation, and I then want the letters to move only vertically. My problem is that when I keyframe each letter's position to move vertically, this is affected by the rotation of the word. I can go keyframe each letter's position to make up for this rotation, but it's very timeconsuming for the number of letters I need to animate and isn't exact.
I was hoping I could make nulls for each letter and apply the vertical movement to those, but of course I can't parent the letters to these nulls because they're already parented to the word nulls.
