Text#126

Add text to the animation. I understand that this requiers a bit of work (selecting fonts, sizes, rendering fonts into shapes), but I believe that this would be useful.

Also, this tool is simply amazing!

Thanks, @Davi Mello! Text is planned and we’ve already done a decent amount of work to support it, just trying to prioritize among all our other features. Will be good to see the votes it gets here. :)

Rive looks amazing. We would like to use it create motion graphics for online content. If text is implemented, would there be a way to manipulate objects with it? A use case that comes up a lot in our work is to size a rectangle to the width of the text + a few pixels padding. In after effects, we do this by adding an expression, which is essentially a small javascript snippet that can modify the ppropertie of a shape frame by frame. Is there something planned like that in the future?

I believe that this is planned since we already manipulate text in SVG as shapes.

Is there anything that I can do to help you guys? I’m planning to ditch After Effects and anything that I can do to help this amazing platform will be a interesting for me.

@Davi Mello feel free to shoot us a note at hello@rive.app!

@Nick Verlinden this is something we would support, but it wouldn’t be directly related to the text feature itself. It would be a more generic type of constraint (or new group/container type) that would allow you to set layout options for resizing and alignment.

Thanks for all the interest! We’re not sharing timelines but we are still working on this – it’s a high priority.

Anyone looking to do text in Rive before text is supported in Rive, I suggest creating the text in Inkscape, and then using Inkscape’s “Path/Object to Path” menu item to convert the text. Other graphics tools have similar options, so you don’t have to use Inkscape. To improve the rendering quality, use a larger size font and then scale it down within Rive after you import it.
