Hello Hope you don't mind if I ask for a little guidance again. I'm following several After Effects video tutorials, learning all the basics but I can't figure out how to adjust a text effect.
I applied the Bubble Pulse effect on some text but I want it to start at 1 second. I tried putting the time indicator at 1 second and bringing the effect there but it still starts from 0. Then I tried using keyframes. At keyframe 1 I adjusted the effect to start as normal text and at 1 second begin the effect but the animation loops severeal between the 2 key frames. I'm not sure if I can show the animation once with a speed based on the time between the 2 keyframes.
The last thing I tried is to create 2 text layer. 1 with normal text and the other with the Bubble Pulse. At 1 second the normal text ends and the effect starts. That would work fine but the Bubble Pulse loops. Is it possible to stop the loop?
It's driven by an expression. Short of completely rewriting the expression, you better explore how to get this done using a conventional wiggly selector and normal range selectors. If you really only need one cycle, it seems rather pointless to even use the preset....
Thank you! will do!
