Simple Text is a script for After Effects that creates text animation in a fast and intuitive way.
If you think text animation in After Effects is too complicated, Simple Text was made for you. The script simplifies this process making it fast and intuitive. As easy as create a shape layer animation. Actually, it’s exactly what Simple Text does.
It uses a shape layer to control the text animation. The timing and type of the delay between the letters, words or lines are easily controlled in just a few clicks. Once created, you can apply the animation to any text layer.

Convert the text layer. Just select it and apply Simple Text. It will create a structure with a controller, so you can create your animation.
Create your animation. Using the shape layer, you can animate position, anchor point, rotation, scale and transparency. Your text layer will be automatically animated.
Set the delay type and timing. You can set the delay between letters, words or lines and three different types of delay: regular, reverse and random.
I create content and tools to make the workflow of creative motion designers easier and faster. Tools like Design and Motion Character Kit, an Adobe After Effects project with plenty of cool characters and great animations, that makes possible create and customize characters and animations in a incredibly easy way.
