The text you just showed is probably not dynamic.
They have a lot of text effects on flashkit, it's called the flashtyper : , give it a try. :)

you can mask dynmaic text, but you have to embed the font (using the A...Z, [...], 123 etc. buttons in the text options) which will increase your filesize

for this simple effect you could also use an object with the collor of the background.
Some kind of mask.. but on a simple layer and not on a mask layer.
Here is no need to embed the font.
Else, if the background is more complicated, you should consider embeding the font, even though it could also be done the first way ;)
