I'm quite new to using After Effects expressions, and have hit a wall with my research whilst trying to achieve a particular typewriter-style text expression. I was hoping somebody here may be able to help me.
I have been trying to create a center-aligned text box which will reveal the input text letter-by-letter, typewriter-like, within two asterisks, like *THIS*.
I managed to cobble together an expression which works well, provided I add the first asterisk as part of the input text. You can see this below.
My issue is that I would like the asterisks and the input text to be in different fonts, when I attempt this, the expression appears to only recognise one of those fonts.
I would greatly appreciate it if somebody could point me in the right direction for how I may be able to distinguish between these two kinds of information within the expression, so I may be able to assign them different fonts.
