Chapter 6. Auto-Scaling Type > Animating the Black End of the Ramp

Animating the Black End of the Ramp

When you added a drop shadow to the text and animated the shadow in the previous section, you created an implied light source that moves over the text. For additional drama, you can animate the gradient behind the Text layer to create a separate moving light source that's hidden behind the text:

1.
Expand the Top Background layer's Ramp effect to display its properties.

2.
Press the Home key to go to time 0;00, and then create a keyframe for Start of Ramp with values 240, 155.

3.
Press the End key to go to time 4;29, and change the value to 440, 155.
