How to give text objects animated effects

I was wondering if it was possible to make text have effects like fade in/fade out or displaying one letter at a time for character dialog. If it is possible to do this with the text object or if there is another method that doesn’t use the text object, please reply to my post.

It’s possible, but you would have to program them with events.

With this, you can get a fade in effect:

(Note, I’m not 100% sure if text object goes to 255 or 100 max opacity).

Timer is optional to fade in more slowly, e.g. 1 step each 0.01 seconds (so 100 steps in a second).

Fade out would be opposite. First set to maximum on scene beginning, make the condition if opacity of Text1 > 0, do -1 the opacity of Text1
