Use this when you need a cross out line through text. (AE does not support strikethrough on the characters panel).
This preset is useful when you need a strikethrough line to grow in length depending on characters on a text layer. The preset is static, but animation can be added by adding keyframes to the shapes contents size.
TIP: Line thickness can be adjusted in the shape's contents size.
Preset: Strikethrough Line
To Apply Strikethrough Line Preset:
- In a new composition, create your text layer.
- Then create a shape layer.
- Next go to your effects and presets panel and locate the Indivio folder. Find the folder called Auto resizing and drag the preset called Strikethrough Line onto the shape layer that you want to be the strikethrough.
- Now with your preset on the shape layer we need to change the layer control to find the layer it needs to follow. Once you do that your layers are linked.
You can control the line placement with the slider called line placement and the shape size with the slider called shape size.
