I have this video whereby text is revealed one letter after another. A text cursor is moving along with each letter to simulate the fact of writing the text on a word processor.
I have separate animations for the text being revealed: a mask expands, for the cursor: the position. Keyframes are aligned and the animation is linear.
However, the cursor is overlapping the text at the start of the animation as you can see here:
I also tried adding a solid layer that moves with the text and hiding everything to the right of the cursor. That works except when the background is not a solid color as is my case.
So my question is if I can parent the mask's movement to the cursor, or vice-versa? Alternatively, is there a better way to do it?
