Hi, I want to create a moving mask to reveal text.
Basically, I have a circle graphic. I want whatever the circle goes over to reveal words. Dont really know how to describe it but here is a video of how far i have gotten.
If you look at the video, what I want is all text hidden except for the text behind the moving circle. as the circle moves to another text the text gets revealed inside the circle.
Im a noob when it comes to after effects, please help!
Hope what I asked for made sense.
Pre-compose all of your text layers. Now you need a copy of your open circle year that is a solid. Place the solid circle layer above the precomposed text layers and set it as a track matte for the pre-comp.
Todd gave you a link with instructions on how to set up a track matte. I just showed you how to use track map over multiple layers.
