Bottom Up


Bottom Up animates text from the original baseline upwards for multiline texts, like the carriage return on old-fashioned typewriters.

Requires FCPX 10.4.10 or higher. May be backdated to 10.4.0.

Bottom Up

for an old-fashioned typewriter effect (can be used for subtitles)

Bottom Up can be used as single line but it is designed to be used as a multiline text display.

There is an OnScreen Control for easy positioning with an option to hide the control.

The Write On styles are by Character (with or without spaces), Word or Line.

The automatic Write On Speed defaults to 100 (which is in Percent). This makes preparing the text in the Viewer easier since all of the text will be present regardless of playhead position.

Switching between automatic and manual animation is allowed for editing.

This plugin is 100% made in Motion. No FxPlug code is used. This title should not break when Apple updates it’s software or hardware!

Bottom Up Parameters


Pauses in automatic animation can be created by adding multiple consecutive spaces, at the end of sentences before a carriage return (may be dependent on alignment setting) and immediately after a carriage return for a blank line.

Select text in the Viewer and not the inspector to apply in-text style changes.
