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.
Start with the text preset "decoder fade in" or something like that. Then open up the help files and learn how to use text animators.
im kind of a noob and I dont really know what im looking for.
Then don't try jumping into the deep end of the pool. AE is one of the most complicated and arcane applications you'll encounter. It DOES NOT reward the person who thinks, "Hey, how tough can this AE stuff be?"
Without a knowledge of the basics, plenty tough, and how. So how do you learn the basics?
