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 every letter is accurately preserved! But TextExploder does not just "hide" letters from the text. You really get clean text layers that only contain the text you see - no expressions, text animators or other tricks.

New Features in TextExploder V2

  • support for 3D layers
  • support for bounded text (a.k.a. paragraph text or box text)
  • support for texts with animated position
  • support for layers with “separate dimensions” enabled
  • KBar support - explode texts with your favorite settings directly from a toolbar
  • scripting API - use TextExploder inside 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, while lowering the opacity of all 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 do not exist with TextExploder.

Also, DecomposeText does not support isolating individual words, nor does it allow using regular expressions to determine the splitting points.

Scripting Support

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


   //use TextExploder in your own scripts
   var API = getTextExploderV2();
   API.explode({split:"words", deleteOriginal:true});

Also Included in Squash & Stretch Pro

A fully-functional version of TextExploder is also included in the Pro version of our Squash & Stretch product. The current version of Squash & Stretch Pro includes TextExploder V1, but we will release a (free) update of it soon, which will include a version of TextExloder V2. In comparison to the standalone version, the version included in Squash & Stretch Pro has its user interface integrated in the user interface of Squash & Stretch and has no KBar support. All other features of TextExploder V2 will be included.

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 paragraph alignment set to "justify".

    The ExpressionTimeline allows you to apply several expressions to a property, so that each expression is ony active for a certain period of time. Instead of an abrupt change between expressions, you can smoothly transition from one expression to the next. What's more, you can specify time intervals in which no expression is active, so that the keyframed motion is considered.
