Boxer - The Simple Text-Box AE Script.

Boxer is the quickest way to create auto-scaling text boxes in After Effects.

  • Select your text layer (you can even select multiple layers).
  • Set the color, stroke, corner and padding options.
  • Click Generate!
    A shape layer is automatically created to your specs and parented to the text layer.

Uh oh! Spotted a typo? (or that one client has changed the copy yet again!)
Don't worry,
Boxer's text boxes automagically scale to fit any size of text.

Plus, since the only things generated are simple shape layers, your project will remain shareable with clients or colleagues!
No plugins, no proprietary FX and no awkward conversations.

There are even some advanced controls.

  • Create Expression Control FX for each property, to make these easier to adjust after the box(s) are generated.
  • Turn off the auto resizing expression for the height of the box. This is handy when creating lots of text boxes. As some words are taller than others due to letter ascenders/descenders.
