    modify timing of the animation preset "exchange"

    markdaniel_ Level 1

      Hey everyone,


      I'm trying to find a way to modify the animation preset called "Exchange", and having some trouble. This preset is found under Animation Presets, Text, Graphical. The preset takes your text and replaces and bounces random characters in a random pattern. The default alternate character is a plus sign but you can change that to anything you like.


      Anyway, I'd like to apply the effect so that it starts at a specific point, plays for a second or two, and then stops. The settings have it so that it plays for a few seconds, pauses then plays again, on repeat. I've checked all of the different animation settings in the text layer, but I can't find a way to do this?


      I'm a bit new to After Effects and still learning, so this might be something obvious that I'm just missing. Thanks for your help!
