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 in V3: Per Character Text Styles

Text Exploder finally supports texts with more than one color, font or other text styles. This feature requires Ae 24.3 or newer.

KBar Support

KBar Buttons

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

Scripting Support

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!

 //use TextExploder in your own scripts
 var API = getTextExploderV3();
 API.explode({split:"words", deleteOriginal:true});

Also Included in Squash & Stretch Pro

A fully-functional version of TextExploder V2 is also included in the Pro version of our Squash & Stretch product. In contrast to the standalone version, the version included in Squash & Stretch Pro is integrated into the user interface of Squash & Stretch and has no KBar or Scripting API support. It also does not support the per character text styles of TextExploder V3, yet.

Limitations

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

TextExploder does not support text created with the vertical type tool.

What Sets Text Exploder Apart from Decompose Text?

Text Exploder and Decompose Text handle text decomposition differently, leading to distinct advantages for Text Exploder users:

Decompose Text: Each text layer retains the full, original text but reduces the opacity of unwanted characters to zero using expressions. This approach results in all layers having the same bounding box as the full text, making it difficult to select individual layers by clicking on them.

Text Exploder: Avoids these issues entirely. Each layer is truly decomposed, allowing for precise selection and manipulation. No expressions or modifiers - just clean and simple text layers.
