I am wanting to create a text title over a looped animated video. The text is to be a handwritten reveal as though someone is writing the text.
I've found lots of tutes and in a way they all work, however the original font that I used to trace the mask path remains. So for example, there is my word visible already prior to the reveal animation (which works fine).
How can i have it so the text is invisible, then it reveals.
If I was working on a static solid background, easy. But I'm on a animated video background.
