Lower Third Box scales with multiple text lines
on Aug 1, 2019 at 10:01:02 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to make a lower third where the box scales to the size of the longest text string. I need there to be 2 separate text layers and the box extends to whichever one is longest.

I'd really appreciate any advice anyone can offer on this. Has anyone built something like this before?

Hey Niall, there were few similar topics not long ago, but here is one I just found, which covers pretty close what you are looking for: Setting a min length while using sourceRectAtTime
