  • Text Animator: transition based on sentence length

    Posted by Darren Lee on June 7, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Hi, is there a method to animate text word-by-word, based on sentence length?

    So if the text length was 2 words, it would end very quickly, whereas 8 words would be 4 times as long to transition in

    I can’t seem to find a way using text-animator

    One way to do it: change to “based on index” instead of percentage, and animate for the ‘worst case scenario’: set keyframes that animate from 0 to 100 words, even if there are just a handful, Then if you add more words, the timing will be linearly proportional.

    Alternatively, an expression could look at the sourcetext, and calculate the percentage based ranges form that, which would work without keyframes.
