Simple Problem? Text animation on path. (really frustrated)
This is my first post on CC, so please have mercy 😉 But I am so frustrated now, that I need help. I am a beginner in After Effects and did not have any major problems so far, but animating a text on a path is driving me completely crazy. So here is my problem:
I have watched many tutorials already and every time they animate Text on a path it goes like this:
-draw a mask while text layer is selected
-go to path option and select the mask, so the text will be ON the path.
Well here is my problem: My text is always UNDER the path and I do not know how to put it ONTO the path.
Sounds like a really easy and simple problem, but I am running out of ideas. In every video, the text automatically is ON the path but not in my case.
Here is a screenshot of my problem: https://postimg.org/image/b373tq6yh
(Note: I was asking a youtuber and he said I should invert the mask, so I showed that I cannot invert the mask/path like he suggested)
Please help me,
