mamoworld TextExploder

Split text layers into characters, words, lines and more.

The placement of each character is accurately preserved without expressions, text animators or other tricks.


Highlights

Split Text Layers Easily

  • split into characters
  • split into words
  • split into lines
  • isolate a single custom word
  • powerful and flexible custom splits with Regular Expressions

Accurate Placement

After the split, the position of each letter is accurately preserved! But TextExploder doesn’t just “hide” letters from the text – you get truly “clean” text layers that only contain the text you see, with no expressions, text animators or other tricks.

New Features in TextExploder V2

  • support for 3D layers
  • support for bounded text (aka paragraph text or box text)
  • support for texts with animated positions
  • support for layers with “separate dimensions” enabled
  • KBar support – explode texts with your favorite settings directly from a toolbar
  • scripting API – use TextExploder within your own Ae scripts

What’s the difference between TextExploder and DecomposeText?

In contrast to TextExploder, the text layers generated by DecomposeText always contain the full, original text, lowering the opacity of all the unwanted characters to zero using expressions. This has some unwanted side effects: the bounding box of all the layers generated is identical to the bounding box of the full text, for example, so layers cannot be selected by clicking on them. These issues are not a problem with TextExploder.

DecomposeText also does not support isolating individual words, nor does it allow you to use regular expressions to determine the splitting points.

KBar Support

If you use KBar, you can use TextExploder with your favorite settings directly from a KBar button.

You can also execute TextExploder directly from your own Ae scripts. Use TextExploder as part of your automated pipelines and your own custom workflow tools!

Limitations

TextExploder cannot deal with text layers where the font, size, kerning etc. has been modified for individual parts of the text. Changes that affect the entire text (like changing the tracking, leading, font-size or font for the entire text) are supported by TextExploder, but as soon as you start tweaking individual letters, TextExploder will be unable to detect the changes. So, if you need to adjust the tracking (or anything else) for individual letters, do this after exploding the text with TextExploder to avoid inaccurate placement.

TextExploder supports any text that is left, right or center aligned, but not text with the paragraph alignment set to “justify”.
