Create a Smooth Text Transition, After Effects Tutorial

Oooh that’s smooth… 

That is one of the biggest compliments I could get as a motion graphics designer. With every project, my goal is to be clean, eye-catching, and smooth. So when a student asked me to create a tutorial on how to smoothly reveal text from behind a bar, I took up the challenge.

Below you’ll see what I came up with. It involves things like track mattes, keyframe graphs, and shape layers. I hope you enjoy!
