Fading Text on GIF (PhotoShop Tutorial)

This is a tutorial on how to do this:
Okay so first of all you need a GIF right? You can start following these tutorials (x) (x) on how to make a basic GIF.
You need to know how to make a basic gif in order to understand this tutorial
Step 1. Open your GIF in Photoshop. Select the horizontal type tool, and type your text. Make sure the text layer is at the top of all your gif layers, otherwise, it won’t work.
Step 2. Select all frames and make the Text Layer invisible by ticking the eye next to it. After this, your text should disappear.
Step 3. Select only FIRST FRAME of the GIF and make the text layer visible again and add a layer mask to the text layer. Now there should be a white box next to your text layer.
Please note: Do not make it visible in all frames, only in the first one.
Step 4. Grab the Brush tool (make sure to set the foreground color to black and the background color to white) and paint over your text. Your text will disappear in all your frames.
Step 5. Using the Eraser Tool, erase slowly until you find where your text begin. Make sure the text layer is visible only in your FIRST FRAME
Step 6. Select the second frame, and duplicate the text layer and make it visible by ticking the eye next to it and carefully, erase more.
Step 7. Now, select the third frame, duplicate again the last text layer, make it visible on that frame and erase a bit more. Repeat this with all your frames util you are done.
TIP: For example, you are on the first frame, ONLY the text layer should be visible there (not the duplicated one) now in the second frame, the first and the duplicated text layer should be visible, in the third frame, should be visible the first, duplicated and the duplicated2 text layer. Did you get it? Yeah, I know it’s confusing.
ALL DONE :)
