Quick Overview

Extend a text layer's width in After Effects by literally stretching it! If you've done this before, you most likely had to outline your text, but Stretch-it works with editable typography and offers you a series of very useful controls. No external plugins needed, works with all the fonts your operating system can handle. Stretch-it will save you tons of time!

I've created this tool because I’ve always liked the contrast between overstretched and condensed letters in a single word. I used to make the effect in a number of ways, but all of them were time-consuming as it couldn’t be done with an editable text layer. I’d go far in the treatment, then if I changed my mind on the chosen letter, the word itself, or the font, I simply had to start from the beginning: Create a new text layer, outline the text and so on... this tool allows you to create this in one click!
