Use Motion 5 to Create Animated Highlights on Text

When you’re including text in your video, you have a lot of options for how to show it.

This video demonstrates one technique you might want to try. It works well if you have a voiceover that’s reading from a letter. You can include the letter and then show an animated highlight over part of the text.

I use Motion 5 to demonstrate this technique.
