Features (5 out of 5)

Textaizer Pro has several options to refine the creation of text mosaic, and a few basic bitmap filters to tune the source picture to improve the result. A source picture is used to derive the colors of each individual character. Any picture can be chosen and any text can be used. If a text is too short to cover the picture, it will be repeated. It has an in-built full screen viewer to preview graphics you have created. This viewer has few options which includes zoom in/out slider. With this slider you can zoom in or out the resulting picture in a very smooth way. There are few preset to quickly reset to the desired viewing size. You can select high quality result preview to create a high quality preview result, but only when the picture is smaller than the preview window. You can also change the font of the text you are using to create the picture with the font setting option. When pressing the initial font button you can define font, font size, font style, effects and font color. With the circle text mosaic feature text can be rotated and printed on the canvas as a spiral. This feature only works for text mosaic creation. With Textaizer Pro you can also create basic ASCII art, and the effect can be great if you use its basic filter to tune the source picture. With this feature you can create your own ASCII art picture by drawing lines, characters or directly typing the code. For convenience, a background picture can be used and act as a guide to draw your own art.

With Textaizer Pro you can make text video clips from video clips. With Videaizer you can animate Textaized bitmaps in sequence. You will need a source video clip or a selection of equal sized bitmaps. The Videaizer decomposes the source video clip into separate bitmaps; Textaizer Pro then takes each individual bitmap and creates a textaized picture from it. As an alternative input a sequence of bitmap can be used. Multi-file Videaizing tool can be used to import these bitmaps into your project.
