Animate text from pragraph to line and vise versa
on Jul 8, 2016 at 7:28:33 am

I'm looking for an easyway to make a whole paragraph, actually the whole screen is filled with text and then make it move so all the text in the paragraph becomes a long line which I can animate with path/mask. ITs like grabbing the last word on the botton right corner, pulling it to the right and the whole text follows, leaving some empty space from the top row left and keep going untill the whole text becomes one long line. Hard to explain may be this image will help.

The idea is that then I zoom in the end of paragraph and make the whole text follow a path.

Any tips on an easy way to acheive this is welcome
thanks

You would have to have each line have the entire paragraph's worth of text on it and then move the text along the line so that it just looks like one paragraph - you would use track mattes so that each line fits in the "paragraph". Then, you could animate each line of text sliding along.

THIS IS BRILLIANT, why didn't I thought of that, I then simply animate position and link them to one parameter, a null with an expression control.
Thanks a lot.
