    Hi!

    Is there an expression for typing out text one letter at a time without using text animators?

    I have an automatic resizing text box for my text but I found that it doesn’t really follow the size of may text when I used the typewriter text animator, so I have to keyframe every letter being written out in the source text parameter.

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    I think you can actually do this with a text animator, but rather than using opacity, use scale. You’ll also want to change the smoothness to 0%
