Ok so basically I have a video and lets say the word "DARK", i just want the word to appear and zoom in towards the screen as if we are entering inside the letter A.
But what I'm trying to do is make the video start playing inside the letter A of the word DARK while its scaling up to fill the whole screen.. Im sure it has something to do with the mask or alpha matte or something but I can figure it out..
Can you get a track matte to work? Just animate your word, duplicate the text layer, then put a video between the two copies of the word and select Alpha Track Matte on the word layer. Animate the opacity of the Video to get it to fade in. That's all there is to it.
