I know the basics of using the text animators with the range selectors, offsets, selector shape, etc, but I can't quite figure this out..
I'm trying to animate each letter in a word to start at 0% scale, grow to say 110% and then return to 100%. I'm using an offset with the Ramp Up shape, based on Characters. So I'm able to scale the letters from 0% - 100%, but I can't figure out how to make the letters go beyond 100% and then back to 100%. You've seen the effect a million times and I figured this would be easily recreated with the animator.
I played with the wiggly selector and I couldn't quite get it to do what I wanted. Then I thought I could just add another scale property, but apparently you can only have one scale property per animator.
Can anyone give me any pointers on this basic effect?
ok, so after I posted that, I figured out how to add a second animator with scale. I set up the 2nd animator just like the first one, but pushed the offset keyframes down the timeline a few frames. So now animator 1 scales up from 0% and animator 2 scales from 150% back to 100%. It seems kinda backwards to me but for some reason it works. Is this the best way to achieve this effect, or can it be done with only one animator?
