i'm a total noob. i'm trying to just line up this text between the blue lines i've placed but the text has motion on it. so when i try to move it in various ways the motion path gets changed - which i don't think is what i want. it's a template that i'm modifying and i want keep all the motion as it was - i'm just editing text.
thanks for any help!
You'll have to reveal all of the keframes for position in the timeline, select them all, then find a keyframe in the Comp window and drag the entire group at once. If all keyframes are not selected then you will simply add a new one or move the one you are on.
An alternative would be to add a 3D null to your project, parent the text layer to the null and then move the null.
worked like a charm. thanks!
