AEScripts TextBox 2 v1.2.3 for After Effects Free Download

TextBox is a native plugin that creates a perfectly sized, customisable shape behind your text that updates automatically and is applied directly to the text layer so no need for parenting, mattes or expressions.

TextBox is perfect for saving time when working with text & shapes. Layer parenting is helpful but doesn’t take into account things such as animated tracking. Parenting is even more cumbersome if you want matting as well. TextBox does all this and more in one convenient layer.

  • Automatically updates with your text
  • Shape options (auto, square, circle, polygon)

  • Border dashes & line cap options (butt & rounded)
  • 8, 16 & 32bpc compatible

  • Animating text in and out
