text selectors multiple changes
on Nov 3, 2011 at 8:16:30 pm


don't know why I'm having so much trouble with this....

Let's say I set up a text animation using selectors and offset that

takes $10,000

and each character zooms, spins, and fades in sequentially

so I set up my adjusted values on position, opacity, and rotation

and i set up my offset fine

now my brain breaks...

on that same $10,000

but later in time I want to give the characters a sequential vertical bounce...or a position change.

Now that I have already set a range selector and am using that with position....

how do I do further editing to the same text obejct?

Sorry if I'm dense...

Hi there,

To add a position bounce with it's own range selector . . . instead of adding a property to the existing animator. Add a completely new animator by clicking on the "Animate" flyout menu (as opposed to the "Add" flyout menu).

Hope this helps!

Thanks ANgie...

I don't see an option to add a new animator as you describe....

but I can do it if I take my existing animator and duplicate it....

then I reset it and work from there....

thanks again!
