I've created a huge credit scroll with multiple text layers.
Each layer is formatted differently and now I would like to merge all the layers into a single one so I can change certain attributes like leading and have it affect the entire scroll.
Is there a way to do this?
select all layers , right click on on of them
and select Pre-compose
If you have already animated all of the layers then there is no easy way to take all of that animation and apply it to a new layer with the titles.
A better workflow is to create a tall photoshop document and add all of your text to the Photoshop document formatting each row. Then import your PSD as a composition retaining editable text, then open the comp, copy your text layer and animate that. If you need further formatting then convert the text layer to type in AE.
