| In this MotionR tutorial, we will finish the whiteboard animation. We already have animated the drawing simulation for the logo. Now we will create a writing simulation for the company name.|
The method that we are about to use will create a good simulation of the hand writing the company name on the screen, because the pencil will trace over each individual letter in the text. This is great for a custom whiteboard video for a client. But if you are creating a template that will allow the placeholder text to be replaced with another text, you will want to use the same type of simulation that we used to draw the logo.
For example, you will make the Bezier path zig zag over the placeholder text instead of tracing the individual letters. Although the simulation isn't as realistic as the writing simulation that we will learn to create here, it's flexible enough for a template.
But let's assume that this is a custom whiteboard video for a client and we will create the realistic writing simulation.
We will use the Text tool in Motion to add the company name to the project. We want this animation to begin a few frames after the first animation ends, which is at the 02:00 mark on the Timeline. So, let's start this animation at the 02:10 mark and it will last two seconds.
