Animated Text with Transparency

Post by greenvillehughes »

Hi,
I am using the Text Animator effect to create scrolling text in a clip.
I would like to make the scrolling text transparent so you can see a background video.
I need the area around the text to be black, with only the interior of the letters transparent.
Can someone help me figure out how to do this in Avenue 6?
Thank you.
-Edwin

Hi Edwin,
What you can do is use Layer 'Mask Mode'.
Put the video you want to play in Layer 1.
Add the Text Animator to Layer 2.
Set Layer 2's Mask Mode to 'One Below'.
