Ukrainian developer Belight Software may be caught up in a dreadful war, but it’s very much business as usual for the Odesa-based developer who has just announced the release of the latest version of its Art Text typography design software.

The latest release incorporates an entirely new animation feature. Belight Software is known for its innovative range of Mac applications. Art Text 4 offers a unique approach to creating text effects and typography-based graphics. Now the 4.2 update brings more features for social media, video production and web design. Users can breathe life into typography graphics by animating text-effect changes and creating 3D text motions.

Almost every text effect featured in Art Text can now be used in typography animation, regardless of whether it’s 2D or 3D text. Animation in Art Text is based on keyframes and is a step-by-step process. Users can make changes to a design and record each change as a new state or keyframe. Once that’s done, the user can sit back and relax while Art Text does all the hard work. The program automatically creates an animated video by smoothly moving from one keyframe to the next.

Hundreds of effects are available in Art Text, so the animated clips that can be made are only really limited by the user’s imagination. However, the Art Text animation feature isn’t just limited to motion text. Users can animate different 2D text effects to produce appearing text, text color changes, watercolor and even liquid text animation. A shaky or jelly text effect is possible by transforming shapes and multiple 2D text distortions that alter the text font shape.

Art Text also helps users create realistic text animations by changing textures. Text thicknesses and depths can be adjusted alongside focus effects for 3D animations. The app can also create 3D motion animations with text pivots, twirls or orbiting around other letters.

The Spray Fill effect can create typography of multiple photorealistic 2D objects like leaves, coffee beans, sugar sprinkles and other items. Users have complete control over the fill objects’ size, density and distribution, so composing words and animations is simple. Meanwhile, Art Text 4’s Loops are ideal for TikTok and Reels videos, web design and good GIFs. Art Text can produce smooth looped videos by clicking on the Loop button.

Pricing & Availability: This latest update to Art Text 4 is available now and is free for all existing users. New users can buy Art Text for $29.99.
