In LiveType you can matte a movie or image to an object. This includes objects that have animation. By matting a movie to one of the objects in the Particle category especially, you create an effect that looks like you spent serious time and effort. The reality is this operation takes about twenty seconds.
After applying an object to your LiveType project, you will need to go into the Matte option of the Attributes tab. Selecting the Movie or image option in the Matte to pull down menu, will allow you to choose what you want to matte to the object. You may want to adjust the duration of the object to either control the speed of the effect, or include more of a movie.

Another work flow is to apply an object to your LiveType project, adjust the duration, and take it into Final Cut Pro.  Once in Final Cut Pro you can composite the LiveType project to a movie or image, and have certain flexibilities you wouldn’t have in LiveType.
