Text Box Help?

  Hey y'all, I'm working on a lyric video and I'm wondering if there's a way to time the appearance of individual words within a text box (I'd like them to appear as they're sung in the song). Is there a way to do that, or must I create a different text box (and track) for each word? Or is there an easier way that I'm not aware of? Thanks for any input!

    You can animate a mask to reveal each word, and thus have full control over when they appear. The Constant interpolation option is handy if you want the words to appear in their entirety, rather than one letter at a time. Keyframe the mask to fully include each word at the specific timing you want, then set those keyframes to Constant so it jumps directly from one keyframe to the next.
