  • change text over time with expression

    Hi there!
    how can I change text over time with an expression?
    Let’s say I want that my “initial text” to become the “final text”, in 4 seconds and with a gradual change of letters?

    Thanks a lot

    Depends on what you mean by “gradual” change.

    Do you want the layers to fade ? Flip ? Just suddenly change with a cut, one by one ?

    And for example, what would there be at the 50% mark in your example ?

    Should the expression be smart enough that “text” is present in both start and finish, even though those characters are at different locations in the text-string ?

    It’s a non-trivial problem to solve, but I think you have to define the design first.

    Hi Filip,
    thanks a lot for your answer. You’re right. There was to many undefined points; in my message and in my head 🙂

    I finally opted for an easier solution, but I will treasure your questions in the future

    Thanks a lot
