Minimal Title Opener in After Effects (Kinetic Typography)

Minimal Title Opener in After Effects (Kinetic Typography) - student project

Another enjoyable experience Andrzej. Thankyou again for uploading another tutorial. I was just about to start your older tutorials when I saw you posted a new class today. I was too excited I had to attack this one first.

Initial result: Here is my initial result when following Andrzej during the tutorial. I had a little trouble with the masks not masking the smaller text before the main text cut. I could still see the smaller text when the full text was coming onto the screen. So I cut down the layer (alt+]) to only show when the main text cut off and added a quick opacity transition so the smaller text didn't show through the main text. Not sure if I missed something but my quick fix worked well to make it a lot cleaner. I've included a screenshot of how I fixed it. The opacity values for the keyframes were 0% and 100% which allowed it to show as soon as the bottom half disappeared. Below that is my initial result in GIF form.
