Designed to create any type of loading or progress bar, fast and easy. No more aligning, masking and fiddling around with expressions to create a simple bar. LoadUP! creates all the necessary shape and text layers, inserts key expressions and adds convenient effect controls for easy customization.
With LoadUP you can create any loading bar along with a text layer, pointer(s) and a ton of effect controls to customize it to your liking.
Afew examples of the 13 different numbering modes:
A few example of the ‘one-click presets’ included with LoadUP:
User interface – Basic options
LoadUP! can be run as a dockable panel (will be visible and run from the “Window” menu in After Effects) or in “window” mode” (visible and run from the File -> Scripts menu).
The mode depends on which folder you install the script in.
Great care has been taken to make sure that most properties controlled by LoadUP! expressions is unlocked and editable.
The text layer(s) that the script creates is completely independent. This means you can edit, move, scale, rotate, etc. the layer in relation to the bar. You can even delete the text layer you want without affecting the functionality of the script.
User interface – Powerful numbering options
LoadUP! has a unique feature that prevents the annoying character wiggling you get when animating (counting up or down) a text layer. When “separate digits” is checked, LoadUP! puts every necessary digit to a different layer and animates all of them just like being a single layer. This way you can use whatever font you prefer, without worrying about character widths, mono-spaced fonts etc.
LoadUP! comes with 10 carefully picked color presets to easily change the look of your bar.
Additionally, you can fully customize every part of the bar. You can set the color of the filling, stripes, text, pointer, background and outline.
By holding the CTRL key pressed on your keyboard and hitting [ APPLY ], LoadUP! randomizes the colors and applies them to the selected LoadUP! bar with a single click!
