Text FX Jitter Alpha

The Text FX Jitter Alpha plug-in creates a jittering motion of the characters by randomly changing the alpha value of each character. The degree of change and the start sequence of the jittering can be altered. To use the plug-in, add it onto a container with a font. To create an animation, animate the progress. Other values can of course be animated as well.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> TextFX
