Having text appear on screen while it is typed is interesting but what really seals the deal is the appearance of a text cursor. In this video, learn how to use a font's character set to actually add the cursor.
- [Instructor] In the previous exercise…we used a typewriter effect and we also used an animator…to bring the text in.…So if I just scrub across these layers here,…you'll see what I'm talking about.…There's John Smith, that was the text effect.…This one was the animator.…What we're going to do now is we're going to…bring in the word PassWord123,…but we're going to add a cursor to it.…We're going to use essentially the same effects,…but we're going to add a little bit of a twist to it.…To get yourself started, open the text cursor file…found in your chapter download.…
When it opens, the first thing that I want…you to do is to just solo this layer.…Now what this will do is just turn off…everything in the background,…so we only concentrate on the word password.…You click this dot here and that's it.…So I'm going to zoom in to 200% so we can see what we've got.…Okay, so there we are.…I'm just going to move it up…and I'm also going to open up the layers panel…a little bit more because we're going to be…doing some work with that panel.…
