    Text blinking question?

    ooped

      Hello there I was wondering whether any of you may be able to help.

       

      Im new to after effects and am trying to apply a certain type of effect to text.

       

      Ideally I would like each character to appear randomly until a word has appeared and then randomly fade away again.

       

      Very much like the effect used in this video at 1:35

      I have looked at a few tutorials on the net and.had a search on this forum for some ideas but im kind of a noob and I dont really know what im looking for. The tutorials I can find only seem to show the characters blinking on and off randomly.

       

      I am sorry for wasting your precious time with silly questions.

       

      Thanks again

       

      Pete
