I ought to clarify - I mean for the actual etching of the stone with the text to be done during the movie. (I know I can do etched text in Photoshop ahead of time but this is not what I want.)
create two pics in Photoshop - one with, one without text.
add both pics to your storyline
apply a wipe.
not exactly an animation of letters engraved into stone with particles flying around - but the text appears.
to create a 'writing' effect you'd need Motion.

Thank you, Karsten! Until I learn to use Motion, I can use this great workaround
I have Motion but I haven't done much with it yet. It is difficult to find books about it in the bookstores.

One last thing. I have found a good book on Motion.
