Text Tracking Controls

Use Text Tracking parameters to control the rate and end offset of the tracking animation.


This slider controls the rate of the change in tracking values. The higher the rate,

the greater the tracking values.

End Offset:

This slider offsets the end of the effect of the Tracking parameter. By default,

text characters track to the end of the duration of text. For example, to stop tracking
animation 60 frames from the end of the text object (or project), drag the End Offset
slider to 60 or enter 60 in the value slider.

Note: Use the End Offset parameter to stop the effect of the tracking behavior before
the end of the text object (or project) rather than changing the duration of the Tracking
behavior in the mini-Timeline or Timeline. If you trim the end of the behavior, the text
snaps back to its default tracking value at the end of the behavior.
