Is there a quick way to do a typewriter reveal of a CG page?

How many characters and how many lines? You could do this in VT by keyframing the cropiping of the page. Once you set this up the first time you should save it in ToolShed as a User Preset and then you would be able to just click on it for any other clips as long as the text size, positioning and kerning were the same.

There is a george script that does this in Aura otherwise called TypeOn that will create the animation for you, I would suggest that unless you are set on using CG.

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think the cropping method will be effective since there will be a lot of pages and no standard format, however the Aura method sounds interesting.

You could try this:
1) Send the CG to switcher output
2) Open Capture panel & tell it to record switcher out
3) Start typing in the CG

I think this setup will record what you want.
