are you talking about doing the whole opening sequence, or are you asking about the text layers.
if 1. it is simple enough, but I guess you are pretty new to after effects if you are asking. It is simple but rather time consuming, simple masks on your footage and repositioning them as you like, then, parenting to a null or using a 3d camera. fading in the opacity of these layer, adding a shape layer, with a text layer counting up. its the kind of thing that if you ask 100 people to recreate this exactly, you will get 100 different looking ae projects that all give the same result, so I doubt there is 1 tutorial anywhere that will explain it all.
you should start with the first 2 seconds and try and recreate that, you have no choice but to attack it this way. Only someone more advanced would do it all in 1 comp.
make your first precomp 3 of 4 seconds though, way more than you need, ( always good practice ) and do your motion design in that, then you will drop this into a master comp where you decide how to transition from 1 segment to the next.
I think this is the best way to wrap your head around it, and even though it seems tedious or annoying, you will be so much better in after effects from havng attempted this exercise. I would argue that most experts in after effects started with something they saw and tried to recreate.
if 2. that is super easy, but rather than to paste code, if you google
creating a number counter
you will see so many ways to do it. ( or incremental number counter )

do you have an example ?
they are in animation presets for text, its called slide up by word. here is a project to help you get started, you adjust what you need to customize it.

thanks so much for the clarification
April 13, 2023 at 2:02 pm in reply to: scale up non transparent portion of layer to composition
Thanks so much Filip, I am testing it now, so first I obviously need to replace the 2nd line with
l = thislayer;
if i want the layer to scale up to the comp.
so with my first 2 tests work perfectly ( although the scale is showing a negative value – but it is displaying correctly, so I dont understand how that can be )
but on a graphic that has 50 pixels of transparency all around it, it is not filling the screen and is inverted due to the negative value.
here is a link if you would like to see

We can thank Dan and Kevin for these methods.
( if they help you )

Oh I see. There is a post in this forum that will allow to have more control over the animation curve if that is what you were looking for. Let me see if I can find it. In fact I remember saving a project that had 3 ways of doing this, and you pick the one that works best. I’ll check now and post back when I find it.
