This preset will essentially create a text box that moves, changes size and shape to fit the contents of the text within.
This preset is useful when you need a shape layer to grow based on characters.
TIP: There are two presets, one will need to be applied to the text layer and the other will need to be applied to the shape layer.
Presets: Autoscale Text for Textbox
To Apply Autoscale Text Box Preset:
- In a new composition, create your text layer.
- Then create shape layer.
Each layer will get its own preset.
Next go to your effects and presets panel and locate the Indivio folder. Find the folder called Auto Resizing and drag the preset called Autoscale Text for text box on the text layer. Then in the same folder drag the preset called Autoscale Text Box onto the shape layer.
Now with your presets on both layers we need to change the layer control to find the layer it needs to be linked to. We will do this to the shape layer. Then we will do it to the text layer. Last we will parent the shape layer to the text by using the pick whip. Once you do that your layers are linked.
You can control the box padding, box color, text color, position, scale, rotation and opacity.
