How to do this with the Text?

I really like this text effect, the intro text in this video, how it animates, from 1 second to 11 seconds.


Is this possible in HitFilm to achieve this effect?  If so, how? :)

And at 3:50, it zooms in on a photo, is that possible to do in Express 2017?

    All that text is doing is fading in and out diagonally. There are at least four ways to do that in Hitfilm Express. The easiest is probably to draw a large mask over the text, feather it and keyframe the mask to move diagonally over the text. 

    Zooming in on a photo can be done by either making the layer 3D and moving the camera closer, or by leaving the layer 2D and animating scale and position.

    What you mean by "mask over text"? How is that done?

    And how does someone "feather" the text?

    I mean you would use the masking tools on the text layer just as one would use the masking tools on a video or text layer. 

    Shiny Films tutorial. It's for Hitfilm 4 Express, but I don't think the masking tools have changed since Hitfilm 1.
