Adding Text to the Channel


The remaining finishing touch is to add the phrase ON TUESDAY in front of the channel number when the number comes to a stop at time 3;00:

1.

Go to time 3;00, and create a text layer that displays ON TUESDAY above the 2 layer in the Timeline. Use these settings for the new text layer:

Font Family: Arial Black

Text Size: 18px

Tracking: 300

Fill Color: White (RGB: 255, 255, 255)

Stroke Color: Red (RGB: 255, 0, 0)

Stroke Width: 2px

Stroke Style: Fill Over Stroke

2.

Turn on the new text layer's 3D switch, and adjust the Position and Orientation values until the text lies on the front of the bottom stroke of the character and appears aligned with the front of the number.

If you preview your animation, the words ON TUESDAY should appear at time 3;00.
