I hope I won't bother you with this simple issue as I'm a beginner.
I have a very long text to animate (simple animation, text coming in and disappearing, that's all). So I put the text out of the screen zone before the animation, then inside it then out again when it has to go away when I want it to. The problem is.... How do I make it stay EXACTLY where it is (when on the screen)then leave when it has to leave? Cause when I set the position outside of the screen ... it starts moving out directly after it's been on its position on the screen...
For some reason it moves a bit around but never stays right in position before its time for it to leave the screen.
I hope I'm being clear here so anyone can help me.
Thank you sooooooo much!!!
You need to keyframe the position.
Go to the start of your composition, leave the cursor at the beginning, press P on the keyboard and move the left slider to the left so it will read as something like -21.0, 0.0. then bring your cursor to the middle of the comp, set the slider to 0.0, 0.0. Then move the cursor to the end and set the slider to 21.0, 0.0.
You'll probably want to have two keyframes around the centre if you want it to stay on screen motionless for a bit.
Oh thank you SOOOOOOO MUCH for taking the time to help me. You're an amazing person Have a nice day!
