mask text by for soft appearance

February 23, 2013 | 9:34 pm

I created many lines of horizontal scrolling text with blended over a movie.
now i want to use a mask to add an fade-in effect to text like on my attached image.
i tried to use a box with soft edges drawn in photoshop and blend it over the text but i was not successfull so far.

any help would be wonderful

many ways to do this, depending on your specific needs.
easiest might be to overlay a videoplane, (or gl.gridshape) on top of your text, displaying a gradient matrix.
check out the @blend attribute of for blending options.
