how to precisely control text scroll looping

Post by wowmootacos » Thu Sep 26, 2019 21:24

im trying to make banner text that has one repeating word in a line
that scrolls to the left and later ill transform a duplicate to the right above it

example :
____ | tacos tacos tacos tacos tacos | tacos <-- this extra word is off screen

I am trying to use the timeline animator for either anchor X or position X and drag the in out handles with the mini arrows small increments but moving it also moves the time bar making the process to visually match the off screen text very difficult and glitchy

I want it to be a seamless loop not that the line falls off screen before it shows up again

Try limiting the range of the Position X animation to only the width of one word:
