Delay your text transformations by character, word or line

TextDelay is a native After Effects plugin that delays your text transformations by character, word or line. Unlike the default text animator, it keeps your animation’s easing so you can be creative with curves or easing expressions.



  • Native plugin, not a script or preset. This means it is fast and you can add any expressions you want to it (or not!)
  • Reverse, increment, and random order modifiers
  • Range selector to control precisely which characters or words receive delay and which do not.
  • Compatible with motion blur.
  • Compatible with paragraph text.

  • It is also not compatible with parented transformations.
