    Guys I did this it is so simple. All you have to do is precompose your text layer, then in the precomposed layer, just fade the opacity on both texts so it looks smooth, then in ur main comp you time it so the opaticy fades when after your text explodes. It is complicated to explain but try it it is so easy and looks so good!

  24. MikzyEdits says:

    link the texts and do they keyframes backwerds

  25. MrDynastyEdits says:

    How about making it explode, then you do the same thing with the a different word but do it backwards, like reverse it. The only tricky part is making the two different text explosions looking the same.
