Wishes for Text-Animator

depending on the font text spacing of max. -20y can be too little

would be great to have a bigger range like +/-100 y

Agree, is hard to get the right font size for a usable Y spacing value.

I wish to have a multiple lines changing text too, avoiding using a whole layer for display it.
If I want to display 3 lines sequenced, I need to make 3 clips and run layer autopilot
(ex: Welcome | To this | Fckng party ).
Can you think a different way?

Yeah, you're right. We did decrease the minimum Spacing Y so that you can now get all the lines on the same height. It's still way too fiddly to get the delay and animation values to line up so you get one line on screen at a time.

We have some ideas for this, but it's going to be a while.

Respect to Joris and the Resolume crew.
No Doubt, when they publish, it's gonna be good.

In the meantime, francoe, I can suggest a different way.
ClipStackTextEFXwithOpacityEnvelopeOffsets

The right font size.
Multiple lines changing text.
Avoid using a whole layer.
Display 3 lines sequenced.
