So, I’ve recently started unlocking the awesome features of After Effects that allow one to animate individual characters of text. I have noticed one annoying attribute, that could be a bug? Say I have the word “creative” on screen, and want to animate each character going up in “y” over time. I will usually add a positional animator to each character, and then work from there. I have noticed, however, that by the time I need to animate the letter “a” or “t,” I need to really crank up my positional values. For instance, if I want all of the letters to reach the same height, I’ll add 50 to “c,” “r,” and “e,” but by the time I need to animate “a,” I need to increase the y-position by something like 250 in order to get the same effect.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a bug, or have I completely lost my mind?
Thanks in advance!
