TextReverser

Videos

Reverses the direction of selected text layers. This is a common task required when entering or copying and pasting RightToLeft (RTL) languages.

Also works in Adobe Photoshop (Watch demo video for install instructions). To run it in Photoshop install the script in the Scripts folder which is located inside the Presets folder in the Photoshop app folder.

For Arabic text please use the ArabicText script

Since After Effects is built to work with text that flows from left to right, certain directional animation presets like "Typewriter" don't work with RTL languages. We can't re-engineer all of the presets but we will try to do some of the popular ones:  

RTL Animation Presets: (Install in Presets folder)

Typewriter-RTL - ($0.99) Currently this preset only works with 2 keyframes that reveal the text from beginning to end.

    Load Project or Template at Startup

    Will launch a project or template every time your start After Effects. For example, if you have a certain folder/file structure you like to keep for your AE projects, you can setup a virgin project the way you like it and save it as a template by giving it a .aet extension. Now every time you launch AE your custom setup will be automatically loaded.
