Simple Zooming Text

how to zoom your text.

So... you want to zoom your text huh...!? It's pretty easy to do so! You will just need to use a couple of frames and text sizes. Here is what I made:


First of all, type in the text you want to zoom on frame 1 and then center it to the movie.


Create a new keyframe on frame 2 and then go to Text > Size > 13. The size of the text in frame 1 should be 12. After you've done that, center the text to the movie.


Do the same you did for step two, but you should now create a new keyframe on frame 3 and change the text size to 14. You see what is happening...!? There is a pattern now evolving.

Keep doing that until you get to the largest size that you want. You can add colours at the end of the zoom if you would like to. Note that you should keep the frames all next to each other and don't create any motion tweens.


When you finish with the zoom and colours (if you put some), hold CTRL and then press Enter to test the movie.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
