I am brand new to AE. What I would like to do is have my company logo static. Then have one word in the logo appear, disappear then a different word replaces it. I want to run this through with 5-7 different words over about 15 seconds. I am looking for a simple appear and disappear without fancy disolves or wipes.
Im using CS6.
