THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

IS CASE U ARE CURIOUS ABOUT THE CAPS I WAS RENDERING WITH CAPS ON
TO PREVENT PREVIEW :) MOVING ON!

HI GUYS DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW MAKE AN EDITED ( ONTO A PATH) AND
3D TEXT LAYER MASK EASILY. OR AT LEAST MAKE IT APPEAR 2D JUST FOR
THE SAKE OF MASKING SPECIFIC TEXT .

FOR EXAMPLE WHEN A TEXT LAYER IS 2D OR FLAT IT'S EASY TO APPLY AND
ANIMATE A MASK BUT THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS A '3D' THE TEXT WHICH IS ON A
CIRCULAR PATH WITH THE CHARACTERS STANDING 90 DEGREASE UPRIGHT
ON THAT PATH LINE, WITH THE TEXT LAYER ALSO AT 90 (IN PERSPECTIVE)

NOW I NEED TO MASK PARTS OF THE TEXT MOMENTARILY
AND THEN REVEL IT WHEN I NEED TO.
THE TEXT IS ON A CIRCULAR PATH WHEN WHEN I ANIMATE THE FIRST MARGIN TO MAKE IT MOVE ALONG THE PATH SOME OF THE TEXT WILL OVERLAP THE PART BEHIND IT, MEANING I WANT TO HIDE THE PART WHICH OVERLAPS.



THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

Couldn't you precompose it, and apply and animate the mask in the precomp? Or, use the Range Selector with an Opacity Animator in the main comp?

hi, my man

the animator for opacity range selector worked like a beast, just a bit more refining would give me the exact result I'm looking for. i've been using after affect for while but it's taken me long to notice the text animator options -_-

moreover i already precomposed the text animation but i had problems with unwanted text overlapping the text i wanted, so normal masking wouldn't work but tnks for sharing the knowledge
