Tracking Animation Decides between manual tracking or auto-animation. When “auto-animate” is selected, 3 new parameters appear: tracking Duration, Start value and End value.
Tracking Manipulates the distance between the characters. If the tracking animation menu is set to manual, you can adjust the global space between characters.
Typefaces are proportional (different letters have a different width) or monospace (all letters take up the same width).Those caracteristics are defined by type designers. Motype lets you animate the tracking in respect to correct character spacing.

Tracking Duration Defines the duration of the interpolation for auto-animated tracking. The value is expressed in frames.
Start Value Defines the tracking Start Value in “auto-animate” mode. You can vizualise the result by looking at the beginning of the animation in the timeline. Motype will then interpolate from the Start to the End value.
End Value Defines the tracking End Value in “auto-animate” mode. You can vizualise the result by setting the timeline to the point defined by the Tracking Duration. Motype will then interpolate from the Start to the End value.
