    linking a motion path with an animated text preset

    k.loy Level 1

      I am using the text preset "Fade Up Character"

      I would like to use an expression to link the fading up of the characters and a motion path.

       

      How can I do that?

          Please be more specific. What exactly are we talking about? Make the layer follow the motion of another object? Make the letters individually follow a 3D path? Make them follow a 2D path? For case 1, copy&paste, parenting or pickwhip expressions on the position property will obviously do, for case 2 each letter will have to be its own layer, for case 3 you can copy&paste the position keyframes as a mask and then assign that mask as a text path in the Advanced options of the text layer.
