Usually i do a lot of searching and trial and error when i encounter a problem but now i am a bit in a hurry. So some help would be great. I have a text and i need it to act like a rope that is pulled down and then let go. Kind of like a bow, but horizontally. I probably have to add a text animator with modified position, but i can't figure out the formula for the selector.
-Draw a mask on your text layer - just a straight line as if you are underlining it. Make sure there's a point in the middle. Then choose the mask as your Path under "path options". You can now animate the path to control the shape of the text (add bezier handles to smooth the bend).
-Or, you could just animate a mesh warp effect on your text layer
