Emit Text Letters as Particles from Their Original Places in the Word


#1

I have a simple text object, and after it moves close to camera for the viewer to read for 4 seconds, I need it to disintegrate into its letter components and spread away and empty the screen for another text object.

I’ve been trying shape instance, used elements at first then used groups. I couldn’t get the particles to start disitegrating from their original places in the written word.

How hard this could be? What checkbox or event I’m missing here?

Take a look into Birth-Group. Use TextPlus->Animation->Separate: Character to create separate objects for the each letter. Then add them to your Birth Group.
As an aternative you could use TextPlus+Animation Presets:
