How much time does it take you to create Lower Thirds in After Effects? Maybe hours or even an entire day? Instead of wasting time creating and customizing text layers and separate compositions, Accountable Videos came up with a different approach.
They created an After Effects Script for creating Lower Thirds automatically from a dockable panel where you have everything in the same place including texts, fonts, colors, 47 animation presets, and more.
One-Click Titles & Call-Outs Tools is an After Effects Script that when executed, adds a separate dockable panel inside of After Effects.
The script allows users to use copy and paste action to automatically create Lower Thirds based on start/end time and duration of visibility.
How it Works
One-Click Titles & Call-Outs Tools offers a dockable panel. If you have your list of names in a text file, you can simply copy and paste them or type in manually.
Then choose an Animation Preset from the preset library to go with your Lower Third.
Customize the Start Time for each lower third and set the duration to control how long each Lower Third stays on the screen.
You can further choose the font, font size, and font color.
It even allows you to change the Animation presets individually.
You can see how creating Lower Thirds can be an easy and fast task with One-Click Titles & Call-Outs Tools After Effects Script.
