I have a problem that's escalated to pain-in-the-*** levels. I have some animated elements, cards, in an animation where these cards kind of fly in from the side and flip over. Initially they were just images of the text, but now I have to replace the images of text with actual text.
And this means that I need to animate the text accordingly, or I can group it somehow with the image of the card, but in order to do this, I need to create a symbol. My question is:
Is it at all possible for me to successfully transfer all the keyframes/animation properties from the element, to a SYMBOL, which is absolutely identical in size and shape, and get the identical effect? If I could do that, I could simply drop the text box into the symbol and it would animate accordingly...right?
What you can do is make your symbol and in it group your text and image and then you can copy the animation part from your original to the symbol timeline. To do that in the timeline you select the top bar of the animation which in turn selects all the other animation layers of that element. Then do ctrl c. Then go to the timeline of the symbol and select the group div after you placed your play head where you want and do ctrl-v. This should do it.
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks, I'm going to give this a go and see if it works!
