Shape Generator - A text shape

Similar to 2D Text, but as a shape.
This layer turns each letter into a shape. You can choose whether Smode applies Shape Modifier to the whole string or to individual characters:
If unchecked, a Shape Modifier will be applied to each character.
For instance a gradient fill color applied to a text:

... merged into a single shape

... not merged into a single shape

When you edit a text, Smode creates a group of Bezier (one for each character). "Closed" characters (like the letter 'O') are broken down into Group of shapes.


  • True if the text is considered a single entity, False if it is considered a group of separate shapes
  • Text content
  • Font of the text
  • 2D Relative Size:
