The effect I'm trying to get is letters in a word moving up/down in sequence with the first letter in the word leading the movement and each after delayed by some amount of time.
I'd like to use just the Y position of the leader layer, so that the letters don't stack on top of each other. Is there a way to limit this expression to just Y? I'm new to working with expressions beyond simple wiggles, etc. ; I've been looking at various articles position arrays all morning but I don't think I'm getting any closer to figuring this out. TIA
delay = 5; //number of frames to delay
d = delay*thisComp.frameDuration*(index - 1);
thisComp.layer(1).position.valueAtTime(time - d)
