Hi Sir I have one issue with after effect when im select create shapes from vector layer after effects show me this message---- after effects warning could not create outlines empty or unsupported content--- now how can i do can you please help me
I love how you can write on using this preset -- is there an easy way to write off (or, in using the trim paths effects it would be = to animating the 'start' property) ? so that you could write text on + have it write off?
Hey Alex, here's an answer from Jake himself: The way it's set up currently, assuming you're using the Trail feature for the write on, no. If you were to go into the expressions for the Start value of the last group inside the tapered stroke layer and disable it, you could then keyframe the start value from 0 to 100 like you would normally.
