NextPreviousHomeFX for Grow Up?

Is there an FX that can be used in combination with the Writer property to make the letters grow up from the bottom as they are rendered?

I've tried to show what I mean in the video - how the yellow letters of "Grow Up" stretch up vertically as they are rendered.

I did that manually for each letter, but would like something that could achieve that automatically when the Writer property is used.

Is there any FX or property that would help me do that?

What you are looking for is the FLEXIBILITY property.

-Create a new show
-Set the duration to 3 seconds
-Create a textlayer with 2 keys: first at 0 and the second at 1
-Set the FLEXIBILITY property to (1,0,0)
-Set the CHARACTER SIZE property of the 1st key to (0,0,0)

Thanks, Michiel.

It can do something like what I want be not exactly - because each letter is growing at the same time - just a little delayed.

I wanted each letter to reach full size before the next letter started. Is there any settings of the flexibity property that would let me do that.

Actually, I just figured it out.

I had to set the Flexibility value to

(Writer Period / Number of characters) * (Number of characters - 1)

And set the Character Size to 1 after

(Writer Period / Number of characters)

Thanks for the pointer.
