Text animation effect tip
on Oct 21, 2015 at 3:21:01 pm

Hello there,

I've been asked to recreate the animation the text comes in at 00:58 in this video:






I know I could re-create it manually, but I suspect that it was done using a preset (it reminds of the "straight animate in" in AE, but more choppy) and if I could find out what preset was used (it might not be AE though). I could save myself some time.

Thanks a lot for your help

That goes by so quickly, I can't tell exactly what's going on. Have you examined it frame-by-frame.... which you're eventually going to have to do anyway?

Hi Dave, yes I have. It looks a bit messy, that's why I thought it was some sort of automated effect. I've exported a couple of image sequences examples from the video for you to have a look if you like. You can find them here: http://we.tl/BSHnTUzPt9

Looks like the second text layer has been precomped, including a black background, and cut into three vertical slices, which have been animated separately on top of the first text. Then the whole thing has been composed on top of the footage in Add transfer mode.

Thanks Kalle, I think you're right. I was hoping there was an quicker way to do it. Cheers.

It's not a Text Animation Preset. You can do this using masks or Card Dance.
