    Can you crop text boxes in AE?

      HI all,

       

      I'm just in the process of brushing up my skills in AE after using Motion for many years and obviously there are pro's and cons to each program. Currently I'm just trying to find out what i can and can't do that is the same. I need to do a text reveal. In Motion I could easily do this by applying a crop to the text box itself and key framing it. In AE the only way i can see to do it is to create a mask which is a bit of a pain as i need the text to the wipe of again to reveal more text which may involve multiple masks. So in a nutshell is there a tool in AE that gives you the option to crop top, bottom, left, right of a text box?

       

      Thanks in advance.
