I have my text in after effects following a path. How would I adjust the text so that instead of the bottom of the text following the path, the top of the text would follow the path instead? Essentially I want the text to be hanging off the path instead of resting on top of it. The "bro" text is on its own path.

 

The first image is what after effects is showing, the second is the mockup I made, and the third is to show any adjustments I already made on the "bro" layer.

You can also add an animator for position. Then offset the vertical position in that animator. This way you can move your letters from top to bottom of the mask path.

Play around with the baseline shift in the character panel. Otherwise xconsider offsetting the path by copy & pasting it over to Illustrator and using the offset outline function, then expand and paste the modified path back.

You use the baseline shift adjustment in the Character panel to offset the text from the path. It is the bottom left tool in the control panel located just above the large T (Faux Bold) switch.
